Cha Cha was scared when his family surrendered him to the Alexander County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. This small, rural shelter is often full. Cha Cha, a Labrador Retriever mix, was soon in danger of euthanasia due to more and more animals coming into the shelter. A mobile veterinary unit tested the dogs for heartworms, and Cha Cha’s situation became even more dire due to his testing positive for heartworms.
Fortunately for Cha Cha, some kind people worked together to save him. The Sampson County Friends for Animals in North Carolina networked him in the hopes of finding him a rescue. Charlotte Tran of the Animal Sanctuary Society in New Jersey wanted to help Cha Cha, even after he tested heartworm positive, but she needed help with the costs. She asked RADAR for assistance with the heartworm treatment cost, and we agreed to help. Cha Cha completed the heartworm treatment on April 8th.
Cha Cha is a young and sweet dog who will make a great companion or family pet. He is good with other dogs and with children. He loves everyone two-legged and four-legged alike! He has a pretty shiny black coat and is house trained. Everything about Cha Cha is gentle. Besides his super precious personality, he is very beautiful. To see more photos of Cha Cha, click here.
RADAR paid all $330 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cha Cha.
