Instead of a facing a fatal fate, Bouncer is bound for Buffalo! This two to three-year-old mixed breed arrived as a stray on February 1st at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia. Previously dogs at this shelter had a good chance of being given enough time to find a rescue or an adopter. However, county officials recently decided to start euthanizing animals at the shelter, and not only on a regular basis, but also relentlessly.
The dedicated folks with the Mercer County Volunteers have worked tirelessly during this euthanasia crisis to save as many of the shelter’s animals as possible. To help their efforts, RADAR has made assistance offers for several dogs as incentives for rescues to pull these very at-risk dogs. On March 5th, the Mercer County Volunteers got the word out that Bouncer was to be euthanized March 8th. RADAR provided its assistance offer on March 6th.
On March 7th, Harley’s Mission of Hope German Shepherd and Extra Large Breed Rescue in Buffalo, New York, agreed to take Bouncer! He had his initial vetting and neutering done on March 14th. Fortunately, he tested negative for heartworms. Bouncer will soon be shuffling off to Buffalo! Click here to see more photos of Bouncer.
RADAR paid all of Bouncer’s $92 initial vetting and neutering costs.
