Yowzer! Yowzer! It’s Bowser the Schnauzer! And how fitting that RADAR’s 350th-assisted dog is from the same shelter as our very first dog, Molly! Estimated to be 12 years old, Bowser was brought to the Tucker County Animal Shelter in West Virginia by animal control on September 20th. Workmen at a logging company found Bowser along a rural road. He was unresponsive, and covered with dirt, briers and thorns.
Bowser was immediately taken to the vet, where he received treatment for a severe inner-ear infection and dehydration. Much of his fur had to be shaved to determine if he had any injuries. He also got a good bath! After five days of vet care and treatment, Bowser was good to go. The only lasting impact is that because of the ear infection he might be at least partially deaf. As expected, no one came looking for Bowser.
All of this care came at cost: $328. Cathy Parsons, who manages the shelter, asked for RADAR’s help. With several costly hoarding cases early in the fiscal year that started July 1st, Cathy’s vet budget for the entire fiscal year is already depleted. Saving the most at-risk dogs, like Bowser, is only possible with RADAR’s help. We made an urgent appeal to our supporters to assist, and they did. In a matter of hours all of the needed funds were raised! Click here to see more photos of Bowser.
RADAR paid for all of Bowser’s initial vetting, treatment and medical boarding costs totaling $328.
