Finally, after 2 years of life tied outside with a 2 foot piece of clothesline rope, Cooper will now have the life a dog should live. After a long rescue attempt from Sue Yorks founder of Mifflin Co.& Juniata Co. Pet Pantry, Deb Warner received a phone call early morning on December 17, 2012. Even though she was smack in the midst of the taking over of the SPCA shelter, she had to help this pup. His beautiful coat was matted and he was nothing but skin and bones. Smitty had no room to roam, no water, and some burnt cupcakes thrown near him however he was unable to reach them. He was very excited when Sue approached him to remove him from these deplorable conditions. The owner surrendered the pup to Sue, where he spent the evening with her and her family including 5 furry friends. By 9:30 pm that evening Deb had found a foster home for this lucky pup. He was the first animal transported to Pets Come First, The New SPCA! and then on to his new foster home.
