Unlike Alice in Wonderland, this Alice had no interest in following any rabbits. And because this Alice was a Hound dog who wouldn’t hunt, she was surrendered by her owner to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on November 17th. At eight years old, Alice was especially at risk at this small rural high-kill shelter.
On November 17th, Duplin animal advocate Gretchen Kozen, asked for RADAR’s help with Alice. We provided an offer to assist with Alice’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. On November 25th, Interstate Partners for Animal Welfare (IPAW) in North Carolina agreed to take Alice! She received her initial vetting, spaying and dental care on December 12th.
The rescue told this the following about Alice: “She is still nervous around people. Her foster is trying to help her get used to walking on a leash. She doesn’t make a single noise and is pretty laid-back. Alice is excellent with the foster’s children, and likes to lay around with them. At night, she likes to go on the foster’s balcony and watch the people and Christmas lights!” Click here to view more photos of Alice.
RADAR paid $200 towards Alice’s initial vetting, spaying and dental care costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Alice have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Alice has been adopted… by her foster family! Her new name is Sugar!
