Los Angeles - Pink has forked out $5 000 to save a puppy's life.
The Raise Your Glass hitmaker - who has a six-month-old daughter Willow with her husband Carey Hart - splashed out on emergency life-saving surgery for the mystery pooch which had been left for dead after being thrown into a Los Angeles river.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, sources revealed the puppy had suffered three broken legs as a result of the incident, but Pink got in contact with the Ace of Hearts animal rescue organisation and offered to pay for the canine's medical expenses after reading about it on the internet.
The dog's operation was successful and it has now been adopted by a loving family.
Meanwhile, Pink has fully embraced the Christmas spirit and admits she has been much more successful buying presents for her friends and family this year compared to 2010.
She wrote on twitter: "I hope every1 out there gets a big hug and feels super duper special at least 3 x this holiday. even if it's from a stranger. hugs r healthy
"when i am having a good year for xmas presents, no one can touch me! and this year i was inspired!!!! last year i sucked. (sic)"
