Dog dumped in Redlands after her owner believed she carried COVID19 virus


UPDATE: We are happy to report Daisy just went home with a wonderful family and a new fur friend.

A dog was dumped in the Redlands of Florida, but luckily was found by an animal rescuer on Sunday. Tragically, she has become a victim of the times.

According to the Cape Coral Animal Shelter, Daisy had a microchip, but when her owner was notified admitted to having abandoned her because he believed she could be a carrier of the COVID-19 virus. Despite explaining to Daisy’s owner, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest dogs can carry the virus, the man surrendered ownership of the dog to the shelter.


Randall SchoonoverDaisy is a dream of a dog! She is very affectionate and full of love, which already is a huge testament of pawsitivity, despite her history. Her heart is open to a new family, a new life!”

Daisy is very happy at the shelter, but she needs a new home. Check out those ears!

Interested in meeting Daisy? Maybe you’re interested in a smaller new canine pal? What better time to make friends while we are mostly all confined to our homes?
