At Risk Intervention (ARI) acquired Michael the Beagle mix. He is 35 lbs of white and blonde love whose appetite almost got him killed. Michael’s mission in life is to eat. Unfortunately, that earned him a coyote trap clamped around his front paw. Michael was found trapped, and he was freed and turned into the shelter. When he turned out to be heartworm positive, he was placed on the euthanasia list. Fortunately, his wonderful personality rallied the volunteers, and they convinced ARI to take him. They couldn’t say no when everyone chipped in to pay for his shots and neuter. HPAN paid the $230 fee for Michael’s treatment.
