Star, the dog that the NYPD shot on East 14th Street on Aug. 13, is OK and may soon be available for adoption, according to Gothamist.
As of last night, Star is now in the custody of Animal Care & Control. Said Richard Gentles of the AC&C: "Her owner had until that day and time to reclaim her but since he didn’t ownership was legally transferred to AC&C."
According to Gentles, Star's medical bills, "which have already amounted to nearly $10,000, will be paid for through donations to AC&C’s Special Treatment and Recovery (S.T.A.R.) Fund."
And per Gothamist:
"It's expected she'll be put up for adoption—but Gentles says no one has expressed interest in being her human (yet)!"
