Sunny was in a high-kill shelter in western Virginia. The rescue group in that area was desperately trying to get him out before his time was up. Rainbow Animal Rescue was called to determine if we had space. We sent out a plea for a foster and found one at the last minute. He was transported to Rainbow on Saturday, January 25, 2014 before our big snow. Sunny is heartworm positive and will begin treatment as soon as possible. It seems like he likes the snow his foster reports. Sunny is loving his big comfy bed and all of the hugs and attention he is receiving. He is good with children and other dogs and has met several cats while walking and didn't seem to care about them. He is just looking for his furever, loving home so he never has to come so close to losing his life.
