Dolly Parton to adopt abandoned Glastonbury dog
Every time Glastonbury comes round, lots of stories start emerging from the festival, usually linked to muddy festival goers or washed out tents. This year however, the news has been centred on a white Lurcher, found in an abandoned tent at the end of the festival.
The dog was taken to the Happy Landings animal shelter after being found with no water, in one of the 5,000 discarded tents on the festival site. The dog was named Dolly, after the country singer Dolly Parton who had performed on the Pyramid stage this year at the world famous festival.

The singer claimed to be very touched that the dog was named after her and said she would adopt the dog if her owners don’t come forward. The 68 year old even had her manager call the shelter to make sure little Dolly was being taken care of properly. If you weren’t a fan of Dolly Parton before, you d have to be pretty tough not to warm to her now.
Not all abandoned pets are as lucky as little Dolly to be offered a home by a celebrity. It’s a big commitment to take in any animal, especially ones that may have anxiety or previous health issues from being mistreated. Dolly was said to be brought in with a serious ear infection but has received treatment and is said to be doing well.
A lot of people may find it difficult to take care of their pets if they experience health problems that require treatment. Dog insurance will help cover these vets fees, and give you peace of mind that your pup will get the care it needs without bankrupting you.
