A Michigan Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer stopped two men who were planning to shoot and bury a dog in the woods late last month.

Now, that dog is at the Delta Animal Shelter and her story carries a special message with it. The dog’s name is Tunzy. She’s frisky and totally healthy after being checked out by a veterinarian at the shelter. She’ll be up for adoption next week.

Her story is a reminder that people giving up their animals for a variety of reasons can always bring them to the shelter.

“People need to surrender their animal for all sorts of reasons and we're not here to judge. We do not charge. This is what we do,” Delta Animal Shelter Director Susan Gartland said. “We are a place for animals to come to who need a second chance and a new home. Tunzy is 11 years old, very healthy. A friendly sweet little dog who probably has a good five years of her life left.”

You can meet Tunzy at this weekend’s Home and Garden Show in Escanaba.

You can also meet local K-9 hero Peanut at the shelter next Wednesday, April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.
