Grease is the word, but Greezie is the dog! This four-year-old English Coonhound arrived as a stray at the Pocahontas County Animal Control shelter in West Virginia on May 15th. In this rural county, few people have hounds as companion animals. So it’s likely that Greezie belonged to a hunter, and maybe, as they say, “This dog just wouldn’t hunt.” As expected, no one came to claim Greezie.
Little did Greezie know how very fortunate he was to end up at this shelter, where De Anna and her Advocates for Shelter Animals of Pocahontas Co., WV (ASAP) go to extraordinary lengths to get these dogs into rescues. ASAP was able to raise the funds to have Greezie’s vetting done to make him more attractive to potential rescues.
De Anna was thrilled when, in early August, the Northeast Coonhound Rescue in Massachusetts expressed an interest in taking Greezie. However, the rescue did not have the funds to cover the required two-week quarantine boarding. De Anna contacted us on August 9th to see if RADAR could assist. We agreed, and Greezie had himself a rescue! For more photos of Greezie, click here.
RADAR paid $140 for Greezie’s two-week quarantine boarding costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Greezie have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Greezie has been adopted! His new name is Riley!
