Clair had good reason to despair. Approximately three years old, this Chow mix arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on December 10th. Under the shelter’s policy, after 10 days a dog is subject to being euthanized at anytime. With no adopter or rescue interest, Clair’s 10-day “grace” period came and went. It was a bleak Christmas for Clair in the shelter, and possibly her last.
On December 27th, as an incentive for a rescue to take Clair, RADAR provided an offer to assist with her vet care costs. Almost immediately, Missions of Mercy Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Clair! She had her initial vetting and spaying done on December 30th.
The shelter had reported that Clair did fine on her temperament test, got along well with other dogs, and ignored cats. Melissa Payne of Missions of Mercery Rescue shared this with us: “While Clair’s story is unknown, I just knew that she deserved a chance. She had been continually overlooked by rescues. Many thanks to RADAR!” To see more photos of Clair, click here.
RADAR paid for all of Clair’s initial vetting and spaying costs totaling $119.
