7-year-old shnauzer stays in the family thanks to donors

Doctor, a 7-year-old schnauzer, waits at check-in Thursday morning at the Durango-La Plata County Airport. La Plata County Humane Society board member Cathy Roberts checks him in a for a flight to his new home with the sister of his previous owner after local donors raised the money for the $300 ticket.
Sarah Parker says her younger brother loves his schnauzer, Doctor, but fears he can no longer properly care for him, so the dog is headed to Cincinnati to join Parker thanks to local donors who raised the money for the plane ticket. “It warms my heart, the generosity of complete strangers who made this possible,” she said.
“We have such giving people in this community,” says La Plata County Humane Society board member Cathy Roberts. The humane society raised $300 in less than 24 hours to send Doctor, a 7-year-old schnauzer, to his new home with his previous owner’s sister in Cincinnati.
