Well, what do you know, it’s Juno! This one to two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix was surrendered by her owners to the Jasper County Animal Shelter in Indiana on January 29th. But it was not just Juno who was surrendered to the shelter; it was also all 11 of her three-month-old puppies! Juno and her pups appeared to be unsocialized, probably from living outside, and were in urgent need of rescue.
This small, rural shelter only has nine kennels. With the influx of Juno and her 3-month old puppies, along with other dogs that same day, there simply was no room. As soon as the folks at Fetch Wisconsin Rescue in Wisconsin found out about the shelter’s dire circumstances, they contacted RADAR to see if we could help. We agreed immediately. The rescue took not only Juno and her pups, but Chance as well!
Juno and her pups were safely out of the shelter on January 31st, and went into a temporary foster care. The same day Juno had her initial vetting and spaying done. The rescue had this to share about Juno: “She is a shy girl. She is learning to trust humans, and is slowly coming our of her shell. We are sure that with the right love and support, Juno will learn to be a confident dog! She would do best in a quiet home with no cats or small dogs.” To view more photos of Juno, click here.
RADAR paid all $150 towards Juno’s initial vetting and spaying costs.
