A divorce led to three dogs being left alone in an apartment for a week, which led to the three dogs being surrendered to the Last Chance Animal Shelter in Pocahontas County, WV, in early March.
Sugar is one of the dogs. She’s a 6-year-old Bearded Collie mix. She also loves children and gets along with other dogs. Sugar represents two of the types of at-risk dogs RADAR assists: older and black. She’s in fine health, but just needs her vaccines and heartworm testing. Click here to see additional photos of Sugar.
We also helped Libby. The third dog, Lance, a Pit Bull, has already been adopted.
While the folks at Last Chance Animal Shelter are trying very hard to create a no-kill community by working with rescues to get their animals to loving homes, they have very limited resources, and no funds to cover the vet costs for Libby and Sugar.
RADAR has committed to pay the estimated $100 of initial vet care costs for Libby and Sugar (depending on the test results, we will help with additional costs). This will help not only provide Libby with the necessary vet care for her skin condition, but will bring both dogs up-to-date on their vaccines and heartworm testing, making them much more likely to be adopted or taken by a rescue.
UPDATE! RADAR has now PAID $88 for both Libby and Sugar’s vet visit!! Thankfully, Libby didn’t have anything worse than a flea dermatitis, which is being treated, and both are HW negative!
UPDATE! We just found out that Sugar was adopted on June 12th!
