This Flower was fading fast, and needed some Flower Power to keep blooming! Flower, an approximately six-year-old Beagle mix, arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia way back on July 6th. We don't know how or why Flower ended up at the shelter, but it appeared that she was not treated very well in her past life. As an older Beagle mix in a crowded kill shelter, Flower's life was greatly at risk.
Seven days and $60 dollars. That's all it took to save Grace! This two-year-old American Pit Bull mix arrived as a very thin stray at the Clayton County Animal Control shelter in Georgia on January 11th. As a Pit Bull mix in a high-kill shelter, she was very much at risk. The volunteers at Partners with Clayton County Animal Control got the word out about Grace (who was known as Elsie at the shelter).
Perhaps there was a certain pattern or inflection to this dog's bark that led to her being named Cadence! Approximately two years old, this Boxer mix arrived as a stray on September 20th at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia. The weeks passed by and so did any potential adopters or rescues. By mid-October Cadence was put on the urgent list, and was at high risk of being euthanized.
In the words of Shakespeare, "The quality of Mercy is not strained." But Mercy's owner failed to see her many qualities, and surrendered her to the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia way back on November 19th. Mercy, an approximately two-year-old Border Collie mix, lingered far too long at the shelter.
Our dedicated help for this dog could be paraphrased as "Stand by Your Dan!" This two-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix arrived at the Beaufort County Animal Control shelter in Washington, North Carolina on August 19th. He did not arrive alone. His canine and Coonhound companion Ann arrived with him. It was suspected that Ann might be pregnant. Both dogs were described as sweet and friendly. Dan was emaciated and had some injuries to his head and eye.
Cats aren't the only ones with nine lives. As you will soon learn, Ann also has a tale of nine lives. A two-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, Ann arrived at the Beaufort County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on August 19th. She arrived with her Coonhound companion Dan. Both dogs had some immediate concerns: Dan was emaciated and had injuries to his head and eye, and Ann was most likely pregnant. Both were sweet and friendly dogs, and both were greatly at risk at the shelter.
Chloe was rescued from one crisis only to face another. This 18-month-old Hound-Pointer mix was one of 11 dogs found chained outside and starving in Rowan County, North Carolina. An anonymous caller alerted animal control on June 12th, and they responded immediately. All 11 dogs were seized and taken to the Rowan County Animal Shelter the same day. The animal control officers indicated that the dogs had been without food or water for some time, and were near death.
Sometimes it pays to think outside the box, or in this case, outside the shelter kennel! In an inexpensive and innovative twist, RADAR's assistance for Missy, along with DeeDee and Marlowe, was part of a domino effect that ended up saving the lives of three other dogs scheduled to be euthanized at the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina.
We were ardently interested in helping Arden! This three-year-old Anatolian Shepherd mix arrived as a stray at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky on September 19th. With the shelter overflowing, Arden was at risk right from the get-go. Fortunately, STAR (Saving the Animals of Rowan) got Arden safely out of the shelter on September 23rd.
The only thing that Coby needed to get out the shelter and into a rescue was the cost of a one-way transport ticket. And that's exactly what RADAR provided! This one-year-old Hound-Labrador Retriever mix arrived on July 3rd at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia. Coby's owner was unable to care for him, so he was surrendered to the shelter. Even though he was a great dog and already neutered, he had no adopter or rescue interest.
