For over six months #beardog has been roaming a cascade neighborhood in Michigan. The dog 'shaggy' is very scared of people, but is being fed by the neighborhood.
Animal Control has come out dozens of times to try to catch the dog, but has been unable to catch it. Neighbors have tried to catch the dog and still the dog has gotten away. Multiple other organizations including a Zoo Vet has come in with a tranquilizer gun, but the dog just hasn't been caught.
We would like to catch the dog because it appears the dog may have an untreated eye problem. It is also not good to have an large animal roaming through yards, and the dog deserves a forever home.
Kent Animal Control says they currently don't have a net gun which would help catch the animal. I am helping to raise the $1000 to help them buy the gun.
Any extra money will help go to getting the net gun and to the care of 'Shaggy' once captured.
I am a concerned citizen who heard about the story and covered it for the news.
