NaNa with Nancy Benevento-Brown at Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary
Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary at 360 E. State Street in Port Clinton rescued an older stray from the Westlake Police Department on Tuesday. "How can you say no?" said shelter CEO Nancy Benevento-Brown. “We named her NaNa and she is about 10 yrs old; only has 2 teeth. She weighs 8 lbs. and needs some weight. And she is blind and a little deaf. Her ears were filthy, and her nails were curled into the pads of her feet. She must have had a terrible flea infestation and is missing a lot of hair from waist down.” She was given a medicated bath and ears cleaned and nails trimmed, goes outside to potty and wants to roam the office area. “She does not like to be in her 5 ft X 5 ft kennel at all, which tells me she had a nice home somewhere. But no one was looking for her,” said Benevento-Brown.
