Puppy deliberately thrown off balcony in Kansas City, owner says
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The former owner of a border collie named Max reports Max was deliberately thrown off the balcony of a home in Kansas City. He was rushed to KC Pet Project by a Kansas City, Missouri animal control officer, suffering from a leg fracture; his front teeth were knocked out and his lungs were bruised from the fall.
The KC Pet Project veterinary team applied a splint to his fractured leg and has been managing his pain, but Max will need to have orthopedic surgery soon to repair the damage to his leg, followed by recovery in a foster home until his leg and lungs are healed.

The Kansas City Missouri Police Department is actively working on the case to ensure cruelty charges will be filed against the person who intentionally hurt Max.
KC Pet Project is asking for donations to their Roadrunner Medical Fund for Max's surgery. It is expected to cost about $2,500.
