What a difference April Fools’ Day was for Carly compared to St. Patrick’s Day. It was on March 17th when Carly arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. The 18-month-old Hound-Labrador Retriever mix, who was originally named Kingsley, was covered in ticks. Even worse, she tested heartworm positive. The very shy and timid Carly was in urgent need of a rescue commitment.
On March 24th, Gretchen Kozen, RADAR’s liaison for Duplin County, turned to us for help with Carly. To encourage a rescue to take Carly, we provided an offer to help with her heartworm treatment costs. It was no prank when on April 1st, Best Friend Pet Adoption, a rescue based in North Carolina, agreed to take Carly! She had her heartworm treatment on May 3rd.
“Carly is a quiet and good-natured girl!” her foster told us. “She is submissive when meeting new dogs and people, but enjoys the company of both. Carly knows how to sit on command and is quickly learning good house manners. She takes a few minutes to warm up to new people, but is a very loyal companion once she’s gotten to know someone. She loves to run around and play with other dogs, and especially enjoys a good tummy rub! She will be a wonderful addition to a very lucky family.” To view more photos of Carly, click here.
RADAR paid all of Carly’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $241.
