Bella is beautiful, and that’s true on two levels. One, beautiful is the meaning of her name. And two, just look at her! Two years old and a Lab mix, she arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on January 12th as a stray. Unfortunately, Bella came in with some health issues–including an infected open wound, birdshot pellets on her left side, a bad cough, and to top it all off, she was heartworm positive.
On January 13th, Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR to see if we would be able to help with Bella. They were ready to pull her from the shelter the next day, but they needed assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment. We agreed to help, and she had several things taken care of, including her spaying and mass removal surgery (yes, something else that was found!) on February 19th, and her heartworm treatment on March 7th and 8th.
Karen had this to share with us: “Bella is a super sweet girl who is looking for lots of love! She absolutely adores people and wants to spend as much time with you as she can. I believe she would be good for a household with kids who love to play and cuddle.” Click here to view more photos of Bella.
RADAR paid $310 towards Bella’s spaying, mass removal surgery and heartworm treatment costs.
