Mary had a little lamb, but we’ve got a Little Man! Three years old and a Terrier-Pit Bull mix, Little Man arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on November 15th. While we don’t how or why Little Man ended up at the shelter, we do know that his life was very much at risk at the shelter. His “safe” time of 10 days at the shelter had long passed, so he could be euthanized at any time. It didn’t help that he was both a black dog and a Pit Bull mix.
Holiday hope came for Little Man when Sweet Vernon Rescue of Rhode Island expressed interest in taking him, along with Jet and Ritzy. However, the rescue could not cover all of the costs to save all three dogs. In addition to vet costs, the dogs needed to be boarded during their quarantine period in West Virginia and then transported to Rhode Island. Michelle Ziemba from the rescue contacted us on December 14th to see if we could help, and we agreed to cover the quarantine boarding costs for all three dogs. On December 16th, Little Man and Jet were safely out of the shelter, as was Ritzy the following day.
On January 4th, Little Man, Jet and Ritzy arrived in Rhode Island. We were told us this about Little Man: “He is happy and friendly. Little Man loves to be loved. He is the perfect size, not too big or too small. Most of all, Little Man is so happy to be alive!” To view more photos of Little Man, click here.
RADAR paid $191 for Little Man’s 18 days of boarding costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Little Man have been raised! Thank you!
