Barnaby is a melting pot of breeds, and with RADAR’s boarding assistance, that might include a new one: Boarding Collie! Approximately two years old, Barnaby is a unique mix of Husky, Lab, Beagle, Border Collie and maybe even a dash of Schnauzer! He arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on August 12th. Barnaby had an infected salivary gland that needed immediate treatment. Thanks to a very generous donor, the shelter was able to get Barnaby the treatment he needed. But he still needed an adopter or rescue.
With no interest being shown by anyone for Barnaby, the shelter contacted the Sweet Vernon Rescue in Rhode Island. On August 20th, the rescue agreed to take Barnaby! However, the rescue needed help covering the costs for boarding during Barnaby’s quarantine period in West Virginia. The shelter requested RADAR’s assistance, and on August 20th, we agreed to cover the quarantine boarding. Barnaby was now truly safe!
On September 8th, Barnaby arrived safely in Rhode Island. Michelle Ziemba of Sweet Vernon Rescue shared this with us about Barnaby: “He’s very friendly, playful, and even puppy-like! Barnaby is good with both kids and cats.” To view more photos of Barnaby, click here.
RADAR paid all of the $127 quarantine boarding costs for Barnaby.
