One didn’t need to be a sage to want to save Sage! This approximately two-year-old Shepherd-Labrador Retriever mix arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on March 19th. We don’t know how or why Sage ended up in the shelter, but we do know that her time was limited. This is the shelter’s policy: “An animal will be given 10 days from its intake to secure safe placement. Anytime on or after the 11th day the animal is subject to being euthanized.”
RADAR supporter and volunteer, Sherry Hutchison, contacted us on April 3rd to see if we could provide an assistance offer for Sage as an incentive for a rescue to take her. That same day we posted an offer. The next day, Missions of Mercy Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Sage! She was safely out of the shelter on April 5th.
On April 8th, Sage received her initial vetting and spaying. The rescue had this to tell us about Sage: “It is obvious she had pups not too long ago. She is a bit timid, which is understandable considering all that she has been through.” Sage’s foster mom says that Sage is very playful! Click here to view more photos of Sage.
RADAR paid $150 directly to the vet towards Sage’s initial vetting and spaying costs.
