Destiny deserves to be destined for a better destiny. This five-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix arrived as a stray at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky way, way back on March 21st. There’s good news and bad news on Destiny. The good news is that on March 27th, STAR (Saving the Animals of Rowan) got her safely out of the shelter and into a foster home, and she also got her vetting done. The bad news is that there has not been one single inquiry about Destiny in all these many months.
Destiny has become STAR’s longest-running dog in need of adoption or rescue. She had developed a bad skin condition, and was treated by two different vets without success. The folks at STAR thought Destiny might be a good candidate to participate in the Morehead State University Veterinary Technology Program (MSU-VTP). RADAR offered to cover Destiny’s costs. She, along with several other STAR dogs, went to MSU-VTP the week of August 26th. Not only do the dogs get top-notch care, but the students give them lots of TLC. And then there’s the cost: a mere $38!
On September 12th, Destiny’s foster mom reported that her skin was looking much better. She also had this to share: “I haven’t seen one bit of aggressive behavior from her. Destiny gets along great with my dogs. She does fine on a leash. She isn’t an annoying dog; there’s no jumping or excessive barking, and she isn’t hyper. She’s a sweetie!

RADAR paid $38 for all of Destiny’s veterinary treatment costs done the week of August 26th.
