Forget about the $64,000 question, we’ve got a $64 question: How much did it cost to save Jenkins? Yep, only $64! This eight-year-old Australian Cattle Dog mix arrived as a stray at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on July 23rd. Jenkins was found without collar and no one came to claim him. He soon found his life threatened, not through any fault of his own, but because of the lack of space at the shelter.
In response to a posting about Jenkins by the Mercer County Volunteers, on July 25th, RADAR provided an assistance offer as an incentive for a rescue to take Jenkins. And on August 4th, Jenkins had himself a rescue! One of RADAR’s rescue partners, Paws for Seniors in Virginia, pulled Jenkins. Although the rescue expected to have to neuter Jenkins, with RADAR covering the cost, much to the relief of everyone (including Jenkins!), he was already neutered!
Jenkins had his initial vetting done on August 15th. Brenda from Paws for Seniors had this report on Jenkins: “He is very friendly. Jenkins is very attentive, and is always looking to you for direction, as if asking, “What do we do next?” He has one eye that is partially blue. Jenkins is such a cool dog!” Click here to view more photos of Jenkins.
RADAR paid all $64 for the initial vetting costs for Jenkins.
