FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) -The LIFE House for Animals adoption facility says that a rescued dog who had been missing for over a month, has been found and is back safe at the shelter.
“Harvey” slipped out of his harness back on December 26, only hours after arriving at the LIFE House from a hoarding case in Laurel Co. Employees at the facility had been searching for the dog ever since. Workers at LIFE House say, about three weeks ago, they received a call from a family, saying that they had seen a dog fitting Harvey’s description in the woods behind their home – over 3 miles away from the shelter.
Employees at LIFE House say they went out searching for the dog numerous times at all hours of the day to try to track him down, and Wednesday morning, finally succeeded.
Harvey was examined by a veterinarian, who found that the dog has broken his right front leg, and will require surgery. Otherwise, the vet reports Harvey is in good condition.
All told, Harvey fended for himself for 5 weeks and 3 days. Shelter employees say he seems relieved to have someone to look after him now. The shelter is asking for help from the public to offset the expense of Harvey’s surgery, along with follow-up visits to the vet. If you would like to help, donations can be submitted via PayPal at www.lifehouse4animals.org. You can also mail a check to LIFE House for Animals, 14 Fido Ct., Frankfort KY 40601.
LIFE House for Animals says they expect Harvey to be available for adoption in a few months.
