Better than a box of candy or a glass of Brandy is the fine and dandy dog known as Sandy! This approximately 18-month-old mixed breed arrived at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on September 24th. How and why she ended up at the shelter is as much of a mystery as her breed mix. With the shelter crowded, Sandy was only safe until October 5th. After that date she could be euthanized at any time. It didn’t help that she had mange, some hair loss and scabs on her ears.
With no adopter or rescue interest for Sandy, and the urgent need for medical attention for her mange, RADAR provided an assistance offer as an incentive for a rescue to take her. On October 16th, Missions of Mercy Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Sandy! The next day Sandy was safely out of the shelter and off to the vet.
On October 17th, Sandy was treated for her mange, had her initial vetting done and was spayed. She was able to stay in a temporary foster home while her mange was being treated. Our information on Sandy indicated that she is very gentle, and neither hyper nor a barker. The rescue told us that it was Sandy’s pleading eyes that convinced them that they just had to take her.

RADAR paid $150 towards Sandy’s initial vetting, spaying and skin treatment costs.
