Huddled in a crate on the back of a truck, the pregnant Dachshund mix was drooling, dirty and unresponsive.
Knowing the dog’s fate was death if she was left at the Animal Control Facility, Alison Still and Sherry Crowder pleaded for her life. They asked the man driving the truck to take her to their veterinarian.
Some animals you find, but this little Dachshund they call Jingles found them, said Still and Crowder, who are volunteers with the Association for the Welfare of Animals.
Jingles will be waiting to find a home at “A Fair of Fur” from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at Dippity Dawg Pet Salon, 615 W. Warren St., Shelby.
The dogs and cats to be shown on Saturday have been rescued and will be available for adoption. Applications are required, but there are no adoption fees.
Patti Bridges, owner of Dippity Dawg, suggested the adoption fair.
