Rescue dog

Local animal advocacy coalition Dancers for Dogs rescued George, a chocolate Labrador mix, from being euthanized after being held the maximum amount of time at the Del Rio Animal Control Facility. George has emotional trauma and had broken paws, he is currently on antibiotics for severe infections.

A last-minute rescue dog under care of a local animal advocacy coalition received contributions from the local community and from across the globe, in order to cover medical bills. Medical expenses are costly and local coalitions are waiting for a low-cost clinic to be established, a representative of the organization said.

George, a six-month-old chocolate Labrador mix, had broken paws and was held at the Del Rio Animal Control Facility for three weeks; the maximum amount of time an animal can be held at the control facility. After George’s time finished, he was scheduled to be euthanized, Dancers for Dogs organizer Alexa Bain said.
