Just like Rodney Dangerfield, this Rodney could also claim, “I don’t get no respect!” Maybe it was being a unique mix of Siberian Husky and Treeing Walker Coonhound. Or maybe it was being seven years old. Or maybe it was being surrendered by his owner to the shelter. Whatever the reason, when Rodney arrived at the Cleveland County Animal Control Services shelter in North Carolina on November 16th, he couldn’t get any rescue or adopter respect.
On November 22nd, Shellinda Hardie, the founder of Jericho’s Wish Animal Rescue in New Jersey, reached out to RADAR for help with Rodney. We agreed to help and Rodney was safely out of the shelter and off to the vet the next day! He was able to go to his foster home just in time for Thanksgiving.
“Rodney is so very sweet and mellow,” Shellinda shared with us. “He’s friendly with both dogs and cats. His life has now changed for the best because of the help from RADAR. We are very thankful this boy now has a warm place to sleep, food in his belly and is getting lots of love. He loves to cuddle on the sofa next to you.” To see more photos of Rodney, click here.
RADAR paid $200 of the initial vetting costs for Rodney.
