HUNTINGTON, N.Y., May 17 (UPI) -- Workers at a New York state animal shelter said they were seeking people to donate erectile dysfunction pill Viagra to treat a dog's heart condition.

Employees at the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center in Huntington said Ingrid, a 6-year-old pit bull, requires two of the pills each day to treat a heart condition, WPIX-TV, New York, reported Monday.

The workers said they were asking for donations of the pills, which were originally developed as a potential heart medication, due to the $10 per pill cost for Ingrid.
