Libby needed to be liberated. Approximately seven years old, Libby was left at a house that was abandoned. She was taken to the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on April 14th. Libby’s breed mix was described as a “West Virginia Brown Dog!” As a senior dog in a crowded rural shelter, Libby’s life was on the line.
On April 18th, RADAR provided an offer to assist with Libby’s veterinary costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. And our faithful rescue partners, Paws for Seniors in Virginia, took us up on our offer! Libby had her initial vetting done on April 24th, and then headed to Paws for Seniors on April 25th.
We were told this about Libby: “She is a sweet girl who is very interested in what is going on around her. She does not seem to respond to voices making us wonder if she is hard of hearing or just not listening. Time will tell and give us that answer. She does seem to be house trained and is a real sweet girl.” And from her foster mom, Jennifer, “Do you have that one friend that no matter what she wears, what she says, what she does, she looks totally cool? That friend in dog form, is Libby!” To see more photos of Libby, click here.
RADAR paid all of Libby’s initial vetting costs, totaling $94.
