“Help Us!” is the banner that Banner and his canine companion, Johnson, needed after their second arrival at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on November 4th. Three-year-old Banner and one-year-old Johnson, both Labrador Retriever-Hound-mixes were strays taken to the shelter on October 29th. It almost seemed too good to be true when they were both adopted together. And indeed it was. When both dogs tested heartworm positive, back to the shelter they went. Because they were now owner surrenders, they were immediately at the top of the shelter’s euthanasia list.

Laura Roberts of Road Home Rescue in North Carolina was determined to save Banner and Johnson. She had a plan all in place. Her rescue would pull both dogs, get their heartworm treatment done and then transfer them to the Animal Sanctuary Society rescue in New Jersey. Her plan’s only hitch was the heartworm treatment cost. Laura requested our assistance for both dogs on November 30th. We agreed to help and the deal was done to save Banner and Johnson! They both had their heartworm treatment on December 4th.

“These two big guys sure needed our help!” Laura said. “They ride great in the car. Both dogs are playful, showing their Lab side. They are strong on a leash. They were both confused, which is so understandable after all that they have been through.” Click here to view more photos of Banner.
