Sharing Marvin’s Story and Talking About Animal Welfare
During Winter Storm Grayson a couple of weeks ago, a kind man found a helpless dog alongside a rode in Frederica.
Marvin was starving and barely able to move. He was taken to the Brandywine SPCA for immediate care. Marvin and his foster Mom and SPCA Volunteer, Cheryl Crowe, and Chief Mark Tobin, with Delaware Animal Services, join us in Historic Studio D.
Grass Roots Rescue took in Marvin and that’s how Cheryl became his foster mom. Cheryl says Marvin is their “spokesdog.”
Cheryl also says they want to use Marvin’s story as a way to make change. She says they can tell Marvin was kept outside and possibly tethered. Cheryl said this has made them look into laws with tethering dogs outside during cold weather.
Mark says they can help spread the word about the laws and if people need help taking care of them, Delaware Animal Services can provide assistance.
