This Flower was fading fast, and needed some Flower Power to keep blooming! Flower, an approximately six-year-old Beagle mix, arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia way back on July 6th. We don’t know how or why Flower ended up at the shelter, but it appeared that she was not treated very well in her past life. As an older Beagle mix in a crowded kill shelter, Flower’s life was greatly at risk.
After requesting and receiving RADAR’s commitment to assist with Flower, Paws for Seniors rescue in Virginia pulled her on August 2nd! Flower had her initial vetting and spaying done on August 9th. That evening her temporary foster became concerned about Flower and took her back to the vet for emergency care. Fortunately, Flower recovered just fine. However, it took until recently to get the vet billing resolved.
Brenda, the co-founder of Paws for Seniors, shared this with us about Flower: “She has come a long way in her foster home. She is house and crate trained. Flower is a real snuggle bug! She gets along great with other dogs, but is looking for a home with a cat to play with. Yes, that is right, Flower loves cats, and at her foster home will sneak out to the cats to be with them!” To see more photos of Flower, click here.
RADAR paid for all of Flower’s initial vetting, spaying and post-spaying emergency care totaling $262.
