Just think, if Ginger had already been a mother, we could have said, “Ginger bred!” This approximately two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix arrived as a stray at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on April 11th. Despite being described as “a real sweetheart” and great with other dogs, she was just another black dog in a shelter. With no adopter or rescue interest, Ginger was placed on the euthanasia list for April 26th.
The devoted folks with the Mercer County Volunteers got the word out about Ginger, as well as other dogs on death row. To aid their efforts, RADAR made assistance offers for Ginger and several other dogs on the looming euthanasia list as an incentive for rescues to pull these truly at-risk dogs.
On April 23rd, and within just hours of our assistance offer, House of Hope Animal Rescue in Maryland agreed to take Ginger! She had her initial vetting and spaying done on May 17th. Good news: Ginger tested heartworm negative. To see more photos of Ginger, click here.
RADAR paid all of the initial vetting and spaying costs of $145 for Ginger.
