Chloe was rescued from one crisis only to face another. This 18-month-old Hound-Pointer mix was one of 11 dogs found chained outside and starving in Rowan County, North Carolina. An anonymous caller alerted animal control on June 12th, and they responded immediately. All 11 dogs were seized and taken to the Rowan County Animal Shelter the same day. The animal control officers indicated that the dogs had been without food or water for some time, and were near death. A local vet volunteered her services to exam the dogs and provide essential vet treatment. She determined that all the dogs should fully recover with proper care.
Five of the 11 dogs were adopted (four of those were puppies), but Chloe and the five other adult dogs lingered at the shelter. Time was not on their side as they were given until June 25th to get adopted or taken by a rescue. If not, Chloe and the other dogs, after enduring such hardship, would be euthanized.
Laura Roberts of Road Home Rescue in North Carolina could not bear to see these dogs die after all that they had been through. She reached out to RADAR for assistance, and we agreed to help. With the help of Connie Ray, Road Home Rescue saved all six of the remaining at-risk dogs! Chloe and Vinny are being fostered by Laura, while Connie is fostering Libby, Lizzy, Lola and Louie.
On July 10th, Chloe had her initial vetting and spaying done. Fortunately, she tested heartworm negative. Laura was so happy to tell us that Chloe has gained some much-needed weight, and is now looking so much better! To see more photos of Chloe, click here.
RADAR paid all of the $146 initial vetting and spaying costs for Chloe.
