Rojo is not only good to go, but is rarin’ to go! This one to two-year-old Golden Retriever mix arrived October 4th as a stray at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in Kentucky. A great dog like Rojo should have been adopted or taken by rescue right away, but for no known reason other than too many dogs at the shelter, she was passed by.
The good folks of STAR (Saving the Animals of Rowan) in Kentucky decided to take Rojo, and give her the lucky break she deserves. STAR participates in the Morehead State University Veterinary Technology Program (MSU-VTP). Once a month several STAR dogs get a week of vet care and treatment at a greatly reduced cost, which RADAR is covering in full this Fall. Rojo was one of five STAR dogs RADAR sponsored for October.
During the week of October 21st, Rojo received all of her initial vetting and was spayed. Even more, Rojo and the other dogs got lots of TLC from the staff and students. They told us that Rojo is a sweet girl who loves giving kisses! STAR shared this with us about Rojo: “She is a beautiful young girl. Rojo is still very energetic, but is very calm when being petted. She obviously loves people!” To view more photos of Rojo, click here.
RADAR paid all of Rojo’s veterinary care and spaying costs of $75.
UPDATE! Rojo has officially been rescued! She went to Happy Dogs Rescue in Pennsylvania!
