Rather than a penny for your thoughts, we’ll give you our thoughts on Penny! An approximately one-year-old Pit Bull mix, Penny arrived on September 25th at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. Penny was one of four dogs to be left abandoned at a home following a drug bust. When nobody came to care for them or take them, they all ended up going to the shelter to await their fate.
On September 30th, Anne Shapiro with Adopt Me Animal Rescue in Wisconsin asked for RADAR’s help with Penny’s vetting costs so that the rescue could take her. We agreed, and Penny was safely out of the shelter the same day! She had her initial vetting and spaying done in Wisconsin on November 8th.
The rescue says this about Penny: “She’s super, super sweet when given the chance to warm up. She’s been through so much, but is now starting to play kiss. However, she is still scared of men, but it’s getting better. She is very strong for her little size. She’s been working on leash training and other commands. She plays well with other dogs, and certainly deserves a chance for a loving home!” Click here to see more photos of Penny.
RADAR paid all $165 of the initial vetting and spaying costs for Penny.
