Kathy Zerkle, vice president of Adoption Services at the Humane Society said the rubber band was about the size of a quarter, and the county Animals Services workers saved Bindy’s life.

“Puppies grow fast,” Zerkle said. “The owner might have forgotten about the rubber band or thought it would break when the puppy outgrew it. That’s not what happened."
