Holy cow! We have an Angus! But in this case Angus is a dog, not a cow! This Dachshund arrived at the Davie County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on January 16th. Angus was surrendered to the shelter by his owner, who indicated that Angus was about eight years old. No reason was given for the surrender, but Angus was highly at risk in this rural shelter as an older dog who was also heartworm positive.
On January 21st, Cindy Olweiler with Angels Among Us Animal Sanctuary in Pennsylvania asked for RADAR’s assistance so that she could take Angus into her rescue. We agreed, and Angus was safe! He was pulled from the shelter on January 26th and went directly into a temporary foster home.
Angus had his initial vetting done on January 29th. The next day he received his heartworm treatment, and the following day he was neutered. The vet estimates that Angus is about five years old, and not eight as his owner had indicated. Cindy summed up her description of Angus this way: “He is sooooo sweet!” Click here to view more photos of Angus.
RADAR paid $251 of the $351 costs of initial vetting, neutering and heartworm treatment for Angus.
