The Wythe County Dog Shelter in Virginia was closing for maintenance on November 16th, and all the dogs had to be out. Without an adopter or rescue, the remaining dogs would be euthanized. Jetta was the only dog left and faced an imminent death sentence. The two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix had arrived at the shelter on November 11th. Being a black dog, Jetta was less visible and all the more vulnerable.
On November 14th, Kathryn Haddock, a Wythe County Dog Shelter advocate, contacted RADAR about Jetta (who was originally named Jett). We made an offer to assist with Jetta’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. And just in time, Tazewell ARC in Virginia pulled Jetta on November 16th. She was spayed and microchipped on November 21st.
“Jetta loves to play and play hard!” her foster said. “She will need plenty of room to run, toys and a playmate. She is crate trained and house trained. She does well loose in the house, plays with our other dog and when they are done, they just lounge around. She is a bit skittish of men when first meeting them, but takes to women right away. She is so stinkin’ playful, often pulling my other dog around by a rope toy! She is a real love bug!” Click here to view more photos of Jetta.
RADAR paid all of Jetta’s spaying and microchipping costs, which totaled $102.
UPDATE! All funds for Jetta have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Jetta has been adopted… by her foster family!
