Bonnie, a six-year-old Coonhound had to have immediate medical treatment after a tie-out cable was found in a large open wound under her neck. A good Samaritan discovered the injury while petting Bonnie after she was roaming loose and approached them on January 24.

Humane Agents Brad Adams and Johnny Daugherty Jr. responded to the location and brought Bonnie to the FRHS clinic where she was examined by Dr. Lee Schrader. Surgery was needed to close the wound which was infected.

Bonnie, who wasn't wearing a dog license, continued to remain in the care of FRHS under the Fayette County Dog Warden's 72-hour hold policy in accordance with state law, which expired on Friday, January 27. The Fayette County Dog Warden Department transferred custody to FRHS shortly afterward on the following Saturday.

While the investigation by humane agents continues, Bonnie is waiting for her new, forever home. "She is a very sweet dog who loves going for walks and being around people. " said Brad Adams, Chief Humane Agent

FRHS humane agents work under the humane law enforcement department of the organization, responding to calls about the welfare of animals and the ones who are sick or injured.
