Submitted by EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman of Cromwell, Connecticut
On Monday, March 28, I met with EARS volunteer Paula Redinger of Tucson, Arizona to learn more about how the dog we’ve named Bucky has been progressing at the emergency animal shelter that UAN built and is managing. Here is an excerpt from our interview.
|Bucky was not interested in interacting
when he arrived at the temporary shelter.
Marcia: Tell us about Bucky when you first met him.
|EARS volunteer Paula Redinger
coaxes Bucky with a treat.
Marcia: Do you work with him inside his kennel or from outside?
|Within a few days, Bucky began
interacting with the volunteers.
Paula: Well, he’s only been at the shelter a few days. He’s still a little bit nervous. He doesn’t trust us completely, but he shows more interest than before. He shows some interest in interacting and some interest that perhaps I might have food.
