Things were scary when Barry arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina with bites and wounds on his face. His owner had left him with a number of other non-neutered male dogs and Barry had been hurt in the ensuing fight. This three-year-old Bully Breed-Boxer mix was brought to the shelter on September 12th. Not only was Barry was not neutered, but he also tested positive for heartworms. Would Barry find an adopter or rescue that could carry the financial burden of curing him of heartworm disease?
Suruluna Animal Rescue in New York asked RADAR on December 7th if we could cover the cost of Barry’s heartworm treatment so that he could be transported to New York. We wanted Barry to have a merry holiday season, and so we agreed to help him. Barry had his back-to-back heartworm treatment on January 18th and 19th.
“Barry is a very happy and sweet boy,” we were told. “He is friendly, playful and fun. He is good with dogs, cats and people, including children. Barry is house-trained, good on the leash, and very responsive to training. Barry is energetic enough for an active family or person, yet also enjoys downtime.” Be sure to view more photos in Barry’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Barry’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $252.
