Two short weeks ago, "Timon," a neglected, four-year-old dog, was rescued after he collapsed in front a Melbourne, Fla., Fire Department crew, reported Monday's News 13.
Timon, a Black Mouth Cur mix, was clearly neglected and his beleaguered body seemed unable to take anymore.
The fire crew scooped the frail, 36-pound dog up and transported him to the fire station where he was warmed up and provided with fluids; he was then taken to Brevard Animal Services.
Thanks to the help provided by the compassionate fire crew, and good care following Timon's rescue, the once neglected dog is now at a healthy weight and he is ready to be adopted.
On Monday, the SPCA of North Brevard Adoption Center and Clinic announced that Timon would be joining other homeless pets this weekend at a huge adoption event:
You can meet Timon and over 300 other dogs and cats in need of homes at this weekend's Community Mega Adoption Event at the Azan Shrine Center in Melbourne.
