Compassionate Animal Rescue Efforts of Dutchess County

River the mistreated hound

I was scrolling through my timeline on FB one day and I saw a urgent plea for “medical funds needed”.  This gorgeous hound was found roaming in a rural area in SC with an embedded collar.  I sent a private message to the woman that  found him and told her we would pay for his expenses if she would take River to the vet immediately.   Anyone could see that he was clearly in discomfort. Poor River must have endured many sleepless nights and agonizing days before he somehow broke free from wherever he was forced to live. We had River’s wounds taken care of and administered all of his antibiotics.  He is healed and ready for his new home.  River is a big boy and weighs about 70 pounds.  He’s great with everyone, loves other dogs but does NOT like cats.  If you are looking for a dog that is grateful for love, please consider adopting our boyRiver.
