Volunteers and rescuers were at a loss for words when a tiny Ewok-looking teddy bear listed as 20-years-old was surrendered to the Harris County Animal Shelter on Monday. Terrified , confused and wondering why he was there, Radar just looked around in pure fright.
“You see, Radar is TWENTY YEARS OLD,”(20-years-old) wrote volunteers from the shelter on the rescue Facebook page. “His owner requested that he be euthanized because he has diarrhea and is vomiting. So this guy sits and waits all alone. Does he know he doesn’t have much time? Is he desperately searching for his owner?”
It is not known at this time if Radar can be saved. He has not been examined by a veterinarian and it is possible they will decide humane euthanasia is the best choice to end Radar’s suffering. The group is asking for donations so a rescue can take him and let him pass “surrounded by dignity and love” if that becomes his prognosis.
“We don’t know how much time he has left, but we think he deserves a peaceful passing. Can you donate to attract a rescue? Every little bit helps.”
“If you cannot foster or adopt, please consider donating. 100% goes directly to the rescue that saves him once freedom photos are posted in the comments for everyone to see. If he isn’t saved for ANY reason, your donation is REFUNDED IN FULL! Just say it is for Radar in the notes while checking out.
