(WSYR-TV) – Olive from the CNYSPCA is NewsChannel 9’s featured animal of the week!
She is a six-year-old American mutt who came to the shelter in May as a cruelty case. While Olive was extremely emaciated then and suffering from an infection and Lyme Disease, she has been gaining weight and placed on medication for the disease.
Dee Schaefer, a Humane Educator for the CNYSPCA told NewsChannel 9’s Rob Hackford, that Olive is a staff favorite at the shelter who is more than ready to find a new home.
Schaefer added due to her symptoms, she is recommending a home with children over 12 for Olive. Lyme Disease can leave dogs not feeling well some days.
On Saturday, July 27 the CNYSPCA will also be holding a Golf Tournament at noon at The Pompey Club. All proceeds will directly benefit the animals.
