Poor Fritz was on the fritz! This eight-year-old Terrier mix was homeless and wandering the streets when he was taken to the Harnett County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on July 29th. Fritz was very underweight and had some scars. As a senior dog and mostly black, Fritz’s life was all the more at risk at this small and crowded rural shelter.
On August 3rd Chris Leone, a RADAR supporter and advocate for the Harnett County Animal Shelter dogs, asked us to help save Fritz. We agreed to provide an offer to help cover his vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. A few days later a rescue stepped up to take him, but then backed out. Fortunately, on August 14th, Wags Rescue & Referral in Pennsylvania agreed to take Fritz! He received his initial vetting and neutering on August 27th.
“He is the sweetest dog ever, a total couch potato,” his foster mom told us. “He loves to sleep but can also awkwardly try to play at rare times. The only time he makes noise is when someone comes home, then he will howl with excitement! Fritz loves to cuddle every chance he gets. He loves other animals and every human. He doesn’t chew on a single thing. I call him “Buddy” because he is such a good friend!” To see more photos of Fritz, click here.
RADAR paid all of Fritz’s initial vetting and neutering costs, which totaled $187.
