It was her day to be put to sleep. After seven faithful years with her owner, Fancy was surrendered to Fulton County Animal Shelter on May 4. She spent a lonely week there with few inquiries – and plenty of speculation as to why. This was a sweet, adorable, little girl. It was hard to believe no one was interested in adopting or rescuing her … and even harder to believe she had been surrendered in the first place. We watched her story in the Save a Jack group and could watch no more: Someway, somehow, she was going to get a second chance.
A sponsor stepped up, so we called the shelter countless times this morning to make sure she was taken off the PTS list. Right as they were calling us back, one of our volunteers, Kim, walked in to get her. She was still there – and she will now get that second chance.
She spent the day with our volunteer, who reported countless times how incredibly well-mannered she is. She will even sit to let you pet her. She is heartworm negative, her teeth are in good condition and her tummy and coat show she was well taken care of by someone. She appears to be a Jack/Rat mix, but hasn’t shown any of the usual, um, “high energy” antics of this terrier combination.
She is now at our rescue and may be moving to a foster home soon because of our capacity issue. Of course, the ultimate goal is to get her into another home … forever, this time. She is being “checked in and checked out” right now, but if you are interested in adopting her, please call us at 770-918-8582. For now, here’s a couple of snapshots of this pretty-in-pink sweetheart.
