Dodo was scheduled to die at a rural kill shelter in Rowan County NC. Not because he did anything wrong but simply because he was out of time.  Animals who come into this shelter have a clear expiration date the second they enter the facility if no one comes for them. Two weeks maximum, no exceptions.  

Due to a less than favorable evaluation that he was high strung (our boy is full of energy!) and the overwhelming task of getting so many animals to safety (over 30 that week), Dodo was the only 'urgent' animal left when the shelter closed on his last day and a foster was no where to be found. We were given a temporary stay of execution until 7:30 am the next day and Team Dodo was formed.  

A wonderful foster stepped up and offered to take him in until a rescue could be found and sponsors rallied to pay his adoption fee and bail him out. We stayed up all night working on it,Team Dodo came through and he was pulled at literally the last minute!

Let me tell you about our Dodo. He is perfect. He is loving, he is sweet, he is a big teddy bear. He gets so excited when people acknowledge him, his whole body wiggles and he plants the sweetest kiss on your cheek. He is so grateful, you can tell. Dodo loves cats, his foster says that he 'belly crawls toward them so they don't get scared'. 


Unfortunately, even though he is now safe from the shelter, our boy is now fighting for his life in a different battle.  He has been diagnosed with advanced heartworms :( He is in urgent need of life saving treatment.  Dodo is out of 'last minutes', we can't buy him any more time. He needs our help now. Join us on Team Dodo, even if you can only spare $5, I guarantee he would hug you if he could (and so would we!).
