15 Line Up To Adopt  Lhaso Apsos

Carol Boulay, a Fly Creek native now living in Davenport, lined up in the rain at 6:15 a.m. to be first in line to adopt one of the Lhasa Apsos among 53 surrendered to the Susquehanna Animal Shelter last week. She had pre-picked a name for her new pet: Suzy Q.  About 15 would-be pet owners – from as far away as Utica and Rome – were waiting in line when the shelter opened the adoption process shortly before noon, and were brought in, three at a time, to choose one of the dogs surrendered by a Milford woman when it was determined she could not properly care for them.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

SHELTER RESCUE 52 LHASA APSOS, SETTING RECORD

Milford Women Gives Up Dogs

SHELTER RESCUES

52 LHASA APSOS,

SETTING RECORD

Volunteers Betty Steele, Hartwick, left, and Arlene Nygren, Goodyear Lake, top photo, discuss how to handle a cage full of Lhasa Apsos, among 52 surrendered this morning by a Milford resident.  The dogs arrived shortly after 11 a.m. at the Susquehanna Animal Shelter in Hartwick Seminary, where they are being processed, and will then be washed and given shots.  At right, Bob Wood of Oneonta carries one of the dogs to the examination tabled, where Vet Tech Sara Haddad of Bainbridge was checking them out and registering them.  Shelter Executive Director Stacie Haynes said this is the largest single rescue in the shelter’s history.   The dogs, some inbred, were not abused, but were being treated for fleas, skin problems, “cherry eyes” and other ailments.   Since the animals were given up voluntarily, Haynes said she doesn’t expect any charges will be filed.   (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
