It would have been un-Bear-able for us not to assist this dog! Bear is a two-year-old Lab mix who arrived at the Sampson County Animal Society shelter in Clinton, North Carolina on August 12th. The shelter indicated that Bear was vey calm, and great with kids, cats and dogs. Bear is another example of a sweet and loving dog who ended up in a high-kill shelter. And like so many of the dogs we assist, he tested positive for heartworm. This put his life at grave risk at the shelter.
As an incentive for a rescue to take Bear, on September 3rd, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment. On September 6th, Save A Lab Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Bear! The rescue wasted no time in getting Bear safely out of the shelter; he left the same day and went directly to the vet.
On September 11th, Bear was neutered and received his heartworm treatment. After a few days of recovery, Bear went to his foster home on September 14th. His foster mom says that he is doing great, and is absolutely wonderful! Click here to view more photos of Bear.
RADAR paid $250 towards Bear’s heartworm treatment costs.
