In the words of Shakespeare, “The quality of Mercy is not strained.” But Mercy’s owner failed to see her many qualities, and surrendered her to the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia way back on November 19th. Mercy, an approximately two-year-old Border Collie mix, lingered far too long at the shelter.
Volunteers at the shelter never gave up on Mercy, and kept sharing her information. When RADAR found out about Mercy on January 21st, we made an offer to assist with her initial vetting as an incentive for a rescue to take her. Augusta Dog Adoptions in Virginia agreed to take Mercy, and on January 28th she left the shelter to start her new life!
On February 7th, Mercy had her appointment for her initial vetting and spaying. Much to everyone’s relief, it was discovered that she had been previously spayed! Mercy is now settled into her foster home as she awaits her forever home. To view more photos of Mercy, click here.
RADAR paid all of Mercy’s initial vetting costs of $57.
