CARROLLTON, Texas -- Jackson is a three-legged pit terrier mix that was sent to Operation Kindness, one of Texas' largest no-kill shelters.

After the dog was found by another shelter, they realized they couldn’t handle Jackson's injuries. That's when Operation Kindness stepped in and patched up the pooch.

Now, not only is Jackson getting around on all three's, but soon after he healed up, the pup was adopted.

"I saw his picture on Operation Kindness website. It was so freaking cute. There was a little bit about his story on there that he lost his leg. I came down to meet him, and it was love at first site," said Christina Hammer, Jackson's new owner.

Last year, Operation Kindness had more than 45-hundred adoptions, taking in animals from every state. They've saved more than 85,000 dogs and cats since they opened 40 years ago.

And they do it all with donations.

Starting Wednesday at midnight, one anonymous donor will match dollar for dollar any pledge up to $5,000 they get online. The Day of Giving lasts until midnight Thursday.
