We might need a diagram to explain Buddy’s contorted rescue route. This two-year-old Bully Breed’s family lived in Stokes County, North Carolina. The family wanted to surrender him to the shelter, claiming that he didn’t get along well with their other dogs. Just one problem: Stokes County has no shelter. So they took him to the neighboring Surry County Animal Control shelter. Not being residents of Surry County, the shelter could not take Buddy. So the family gave Buddy to friends in Surry County, and they surrendered him to the shelter on July 20th. Despite what the family had indicated, Buddy got along well with the other dogs at the shelter.
On July 20th, Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, requested our help for Buddy. “He is a Bully Breed and being being an owner surrender, he is in danger at this full kill shelter,” we were told. We agreed to assist with Buddy’s vetting costs. The Stokes County Humane Society in North Carolina decided to take Buddy. Yes, Buddy was headed back to Stokes County, but not for long. Soon after leaving the shelter, the Jefferson County SPCA in New York offered to take him.
Buddy had his initial vetting done on August 18th, and was transported to the rescue on August 20th. “Buddy’s a super sweet boy,” his North Carolina foster mom said. “He’s well behaved, and great with other dogs and kids.” Click here to view more photos of Buddy.
RADAR paid all of Buddy’s initial vetting costs, which totaled $61.
