Rescue Pet of the Day: Reba

Rescue Pet of the Day: Reba

Melissa D., founder of WY Rat Terrier Rescue, shares the story of Reba. Reba’s story shows that animal lovers and rescue volunteers will go to the ends of the earth — or at least across several state lines! — to save the life of a homeless animal. Thank you to Melissa and all rescue heroes!



“We found Reba in a shelter in Kentucky. She was scheduled to be put to sleep for a lack of space. We arranged to have her pulled from the shelter and her medical needs met, and then brought to us by way of volunteer drivers. Reba had quite a bit of trouble getting all the way here, but she made it thanks to many generous people that each donated their time and gas to drive a leg to get her to safety. She is a great girl that adores people and feels especially happy around kids. She gets along fine with other dogs and kids, is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. Now she is healthy, happy, and ready to find a home for the holidays! 

Melissa,
