The rescue of two dogs in danger is putting a new financial strain on the Josephine County Animal Shelter.
Yesterday, animal control officers rescued a four or five-year old female rotweiler who was found starving and dehydrated, apparently abandoned alone in the Wolf Creek area. About the same time, a concerned citizen brought in a four or five-month old boxer-pitbull mix puppy with a serious rear leg injury. She may have been kicked.
With partially donated help from Lincoln Road Veterinary Clinic, medical care is provided, but it’s still expensive. A fundraiser pancake breakfast will be held Saturday, October 15th at Applebee’s in Grants Pass to help raise money for the Josephine County Animal Shelter. October is Dog Adoption Month nationwide, and the shelter is reducing its adoption fees for dogs to $50, all month long.
