Thanks to some heroic efforts, we never lost Faith, but it was a very close call. Faith was only minutes away from being euthanized when the staff at the shelter received word that Faith had a rescue who would take her.
RADAR received an urgent plea for assistance on Monday evening, September 24th, to save two dogs, Faith and Hershey, who were both scheduled to be euthanized early the following morning. A volunteer with the group Partners with Clayton County Animal Control in Georgia had a rescue who was already taking two other dogs, but was willing to take these two dogs as well if someone could cover their vetting costs. With RADAR’s immediate commitment to assist these two very much at-risk dogs, Road to Recovery Rehab and Rescue (RRRR) in Tennessee agreed to take them both! All that we know about this two-year-old Pit Bull mix is that she arrived as a stray at the high-kill Clayton County Animal Control shelter in Georgia, and wasn’t likely to get out alive.
As soon as Faith was out of the shelter, she was a bustling bundle of energy! Katie Cox from RRRR reported that Faith was jumping for joy like a hyper jumping bean, as can be seen in Faith’s photos!
There’s an interesting side story here as well. RRRR was started in February of this year as a result of its founder, Katie Cox, helping an abused dog who suffered from owner-inflicted chemical burns. Despite her best efforts, the dog contracted parvo and passed away. Ironically, the dog who inspired Katie’s rescue was named Radar.
RADAR has committed to the estimated $62 cost for Faith’s vetting and spaying.
