Even without a Juliet, we didn’t want Romeo’s story to turn into another Shakespearean tragedy. It was on April 24th that this two-year-old Shepherd mix arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia. The shelter only gives a dog 10 “safe” days. Starting on the 11th day, a dog is at risk of being euthanized at any time. Romeo was going to need a guardian angel or two to help get him out of the shelter alive.
On May 5th, RADAR volunteer and supporter, Sherry Hutchison, asked us if we could provide an offer to assist with Romeo’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. We agreed at once. The very next day, Susan Davis and her Sophie’s Safe Haven Animal Rescue in Maryland agreed to take Romeo!
Romeo had his neutering done on May 23rd. Over the Memorial Day weekend, Romeo had the good fortune to get adopted! We were told this: “Romeo’s gorgeous blue eyes won him a new forever family!” Click here to see more photos of Romeo.
RADAR paid all $101 of Romeo’s neutering costs.
UPDATE! Romeo has been adopted!
UPDATE! All funds for Romeo have been raised! Thank you!
