Start Over Rover saves dog from culvert
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) – A group of Start Over Rover volunteers have proven they’re not afraid to get a little dirty if that means putting a scared dog to safety.
The shelter was called Wednesday morning about a dog who was scared and was hiding in a culvert. When the group got there, they managed to coax him with about a pound of turkey.
Lots of the volunteers were covered in mud by the time they took the dog out, but said it was totally worth it because now the dog is clean, fed and safe.
“All the volunteers and the people here at Rover, they do it because it’s what they love to do,” said Anne Halbert, co-founder of Start Over Rover. “They want to make a difference in the lives of animals.
Halbert said the dog warmed up quickly after being released.
“When we were all there we just knew he was so scared,” she said. “So many times when animals run, are abandoned or lost, they are just very scared. It is fear that causes them to act as if they are aggressive.
They named the dog Cully because they found him in a culvert.
He will be held for a week and visited with the vet, then will be available for adoption if no one asks for him.
