DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society is both home to and hoping for a Miracle.

The humane society received a three-legged Pomeranian pup, which they named Miracle. Dubuque Regional Humane Society (DRHS) president and CEO Jane McCall said the veterinarian told them the dog was born with only three legs.

Regarding the hoped-for miracle, the DRHS is still $700,000 shy of its capital campaign goal for the end of this year. It has already raised $2.1 million.

McCall said the DRHS is looking to purchase larger facilities to support the growing number of animals it's taking in.

"Much like this little puppy," she said, cradling little Miracle, "our capital campaign is limping along, and so we're hoping for a Christmas miracle, too."

She said the current DRHS facilities were built in 1992 for a maximum of 3,600 animals per year. Currently, McCall said, the humane society is taking in 5,000 animals, annually.

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society is accepting donations online, via mail and in person.
