On Saturday, the Fayette Humane Society was called to a Pin Oak Place address in Washington C.H. in reference to an abandoned dog after the owner allegedly moved out of state.
When the responding humane officer and a volunteer arrived to the residence, they found a dog named Ivy, confined by a chain in the rear of the residence without shelter. A nearby neighbor gave her food and water until the FHS arrived.
“Ivy was scared and running in circles with her legs rapidly shaking.” said Brad Adams, humane officer and outreach director. “Myself and volunteer, Brian Honicker, were able to get her to calm down so she knew we weren’t going to harm her.”
The owner will be charged with abandonment when located, according to the humane officer. Since Ivy has been in the care of the humane society, she has been vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, spayed and micro-chipped. Ivy is now available for adoption and seeking a new “forever home.” According to her foster parent, she is a very sweet dog.
If anyone is interesting in adopting Ivy, please call their Adoption and Business Center at 740-335-8126.
