Near the end of October, we were contacted by someone familiar with the Coshocton County Animal Shelter about a greyhound mix in need of a place to go. This boy had been part of cruelty complaint and was living outside, tied to a box with inadequate food, water and shelter. He was taken from his owners and placed in the county shelter, but after 6 weeks with no one interested in adopting him, his chances were getting slim. Luckily, some wonderful volunteers were able to pull him from the shelter and provide a temporary foster home where he could be evaluated with other dogs. As soon as we learned that he was not aggressive with other dogs, we made arrangements to drive to Central Ohio to pick him up. He’s got some health issues, most related to the horrid conditions that he was living in, but we’re hopeful that he’ll be just fine in time. We can’t thank those volunteers enough for helping us bring Buttons to our sanctuary. As we write this blog, Buttons is starting to play with a couple of the retired racers! Life can be good sometimes!!!
