Polka was picked up by City of Aiken Animal Control just a little over a month ago when an anonymous caller reported seeing her wandering along a local street.
As you can see, Polka was not in great condition. She was malnourished, dehydrated, and would not have lasted much longer on her own.
Despite her physical condition and initial fear, Polka wagged her tail and was excited to meet everyone in our shelter. She was especially excited when presented with food to eat.
Since that time, Polka has continued to enjoy each of her meals, she's received veterinary care including vaccinations, heartworm prevention, and spay surgery, and she's warmed the hearts of our staff and volunteers.
Would you believe that once skinny, scared pup is now this happy girl?
Polka is now available for adoption into a loving, forever home. Her adoption fee is $75 which includes the cost of her spay surgery, so she won't contribute to the homeless pet population, up-to-date vaccinations to keep her healthy, and a microchip to keep her from wandering the streets again.
If you're interested in giving this sweet girl the loving home she needs, you can meet her and speak with a Pet Care Specialist at 199 Willow Run Road, Aiken SC. We're open for adoptions Monday - Saturday 11:00am until 4:30pm.
