It took the efforts of many to give Champ a chance! This two-year-old Hound mix arrived on September 29th at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. According to shelter volunteers, his previous owner’s neighbor was teasing and agitating him with a stick, and Champ bit her. Champ’s owner was given an ultimatum and had to relinquish him to the shelter. The shelter staff found Champ to be a very good dog in urgent need of rescue placement.
Anne Shapiro with Adopt Me Animal Rescue in Wisconsin wasted no time in proving to be a champ to Champ! On September 30th, she asked for RADAR’s help with Champ’s vetting costs so that the rescue could take him. We agreed, and the same day Champ was safely out of the shelter and off to the vet for his initial vetting.
Champ charmed the owner of the upscale Rae-Zor Grooming Boarding Daycare in North Carolina where he was staying until his transport to Wisconsin. The owner did not want Champ to have to endure such a long transport, so he was transferred to the local Lending a Paw Rescue. Then one of the Rae-Zor staff members fell for Champ and adopted him! When his adopted mom is working, Champ gets to visit, hangout and continue his role as Rae-Zor’s mascot! To see more photos of Champ, click here.
RADAR paid all $90 of the initial vetting costs for Champ.
UPDATE! Champ has been adopted, and his new name is Chance!
UPDATE! All funds for Champ have been raised! Thank you!
