On #GivingTuesday, the Wisconsin Humane Society's Green Bay campus shared the story of 13-week-old Petunia. The Green Bay shelter is raising funds to help the severely injured kitten that needed one leg amputated.

The Humane Society says the kitten was found in rough shape near Lambeau Field. The skin around her mouth was torn and she had a nerve injury in her right leg.

After recovering from surgery, we're told she's as active as any cat should be -- even in a foster home with another cat and a dog.

Wednesday night, Action 2 News reporter Emily Matesic reported Petunia was adopted by a woman who recently lost her beloved cat to diabetes.

After hearing about Petunia, she stopped at the Humane Society on her way home from work, assuming there would be hundreds of adoption applications ahead of her.

To her surprise, the Humane Society said it received many calls but no one filled out an application.

After spending some time with Petunia, the woman knew they were match.

The Humane Society is asking for donations towards Petunia's medical cost. Another donor is matching funds up to $30,000.

Here's how to donate:
