If we were to write this posting in poetry, it would be an epic ode to Odin! At least 10 years old, Odin is a medley of mixes, including Boxer, Greyhound and Plott Hound. Odin came from a wealthy family, who decided to dump him at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky on July 28th. He was so weak and sick that he would fall over when he tried to stand. At his age and in his condition, Odin’s days, if not hours, were numbered at the shelter.
Fortunately, the folks with STAR (Saving the Animals of Rowan) found out about Odin within a few hours of his arrival, and immediately rescued him from the shelter. Odin received his initial vetting and was placed in a foster home to regain his strength and stability. When a STAR volunteer encountered the woman who had surrendered Odin and mentioned that STAR needed donations, the woman merely shrugged and walked away.
TAR participates in the Morehead State University Veterinary Technology Program (MSU-VTP). For one week each month during the academic year, MSU-VTP provides veterinary care and treatment for several STAR animals (cats and/or dogs) at greatly reduced rates. RADAR has partnered with STAR to cover the costs for some of the dogs going to MSU-VTP. Odin was one of the dogs treated the week of August 26th. For only $90, Odin had five days of vet care, a thorough exam, full tests, neutering and dental treatment! Click here to view more photos of Odin.
RADAR paid all of Odin’s initial vetting, neutering and dental treatment costs of $90.
UPDATE! Odin has been adopted!
UPDATE! All funds for Odin have been raised! Thank you!
