Addison? How about had-a-son, or two or three, and some daughters as well! This approximately two-year-old Hound-Rottweiler mix had recently had a litter of pups. But there were no puppies with Addison when she arrived as a stray at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on February 18th. With no rescue or adopter interest, time was rapidly running out for poor Addison. No pups, no family, no home, and soon no life.
Early on the morning of March 4th, with Addison’s time up, Anne Shapiro of Fetch Wisconsin Rescue in Wisconsin urgently requested RADAR’s assistance. Her rescue would take not only Addison, but also three others who were down to their final day: Arthur, Josie and Riley. We agreed at once to help, saving the lives of all four dogs. However, a four-dog commitment required some extra funding. We made an emergency appeal to our supporters, and in short order were able to raise we were able to raise $485 for the four dogs (the full invoice was $491)!
By noon on March 4th, Addison and the other three dogs were safely out of the shelter and enjoying their freedom ride! All four dogs received their initial vetting on March 6th. Anne, who describes Addison as a Houndweiler, tells us that she loves people and walks. To view more photos of Addison, click here.
RADAR paid $125 towards Addison’s initial vetting costs.
