The grandkids were coming to visit, so Kes had to go. Kes was surrendered to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on June 27th. The owner of Kes was afraid that the one-year-old grandchild might try to play with Kes and pull her tail and get hurt by Kes by accident. Two years old and a Bully Breed mix, Kes had the misfortune to test heartworm positive. Unlike strays, there is no hold period for owner surrenders, which meant that Kes could be euthanized at any time.
