There was nothing to be afraid of with Alfredo! And of all the pastabilities, this Alfredo was anything but saucy! On November 23rd, this approximately one-year-old Labrador Retriever-Australian Cattle dog mix arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. While we don’t know how or why Alfredo ended up in the shelter, we do know that with the shelter packed, he only had until November 29th to get rescued or adopted.
On November 25th, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, Gretchen Kozen, asked for our help with Alfredo. We provided an offer to assist with his vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. A few days later, and just in time, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Alfredo! He had his initial vetting done on December 24th and was neutered December 29th.
At the shelter, Alfredo was described as being very sweet, but a little afraid of the leash. He would walk only so far and then panic, and want to run back to his kennel. But once out of the shelter, Alfredo came out of his shell. The rescue had this to share: “Alfredo loves to cuddle and walk around the neighborhood. He is a sweet boy who loves to snuggle and watch TV with his foster family!” Click here to view more photos of Alfredo.
RADAR paid all of Alfredo’s initial vetting and neutering costs, which totaled $117.
