Please take a minute to read about Minuet! This approximately two-year-old Terrier mix was at the Logan County Animal Shelter in West Virginia in mid-July. We don’t know exactly when, why or how Minuet ended up at the shelter. What we do know is that she had a lot of hair loss and was indicated to have mange, which required rescue placement only. And without a rescue commitment, Minuet would be euthanized on Tuesday, July 16th.
Minuet’s shelter photo was shared with All Dogs Come from Heaven Rescue in Ohio. Despite having no information on the dog, the rescue was so moved by the photo that they wanted very much to take Minuet. The rescue’s largest obstacle was their lack of funds for her vet treatment. On Friday, July 12th, Deb Price from the rescue urgently contacted RADAR to see if we could assist. Counting on our donors to help, we immediately agreed and Minuet was safe. Well, almost safe.
The advocacy group Paws Squad was going to pull Minuet from the shelter for the rescue. But Paws Squad was unsuccessful in their attempts to pull Minuet that Friday, and Saturday, and Sunday. With euthanasia looming on Tuesday, Paws Squad was finally able to get Minuet safely out of the shelter on Monday afternoon! The volunteer who pulled Minuet immediately gave her three baths to rid her of her flea infestation and stench. By Monday evening Minuet was in her foster home. She completed the last of her sarcoptic mange treatments on August 9th. Deb had this to share with us: “Minuet is a changed pooch. Her hair is filling in nicely. She’s a real fireball too, full of life!” To see more photos of Minuet, click here.
RADAR paid all of Minuet’s initial vetting and treatment costs of $181.
