A dog named Kitten? Yes, indeed! And, you’ll be smitten with Kitten! This 11-year-old German Shepherd mix was surrendered by her owner to the Chester County Animal Care Control shelter in South Carolina on April 25th. Regardless of the reason, it is always heartbreaking when a senior dog is surrendered to a shelter, and Kitten was no exception. Stressed, confused and suffering from a severe flea allergy, poor Kitten also had to deal with being separated from Bear, her canine companion, who was also surrendered to the shelter, but taken by a rescue. This Kitten did not have the luxury of having nine lives, and her life was on the line.
In order to offer a lifeline for Kitten, on April 29th RADAR provided an offer of assistance as an incentive for a rescue to take her. On May 6th, with Kitten approaching her 11th hour, appropriately enough, the Eleventh Hour Rescue in New Jersey agreed to take her!
Wasting no time, on May 7th, Kitten had her initial vetting and spaying done. She was treated for her flea allergy and an eye infection. Kitten had a full senior blood panel done as well. She tested negative for heartworm. We were told this about Kitten: “She is very gentle and submissive. Kitten is ready for some overdue TLC. She’s such a good girl!” To see more photos of Kitten, click here.
RADAR paid all Kitten’s initial vetting and spaying costs of $186.
