Radar’s heartbreaking story spread quickly, reaching a volunteer at the Animal Justice League, a rescue group based in Houston, Texas.
“We actually were in the middle of our monthly board meeting and a volunteer tagged us on the Facebook post,” Jennifer Graves, rescue board president, told The Dodo. “We immediately (and unanimously!) agreed that we couldn't allow this senior pup to spend another minute in the shelter.”
“We knew that if it was, in fact, his time to cross the Rainbow Bridge, we wanted it to be in a home with dignity and not in the shelter where he was alone and scared,” Graves added.
