You’re a good dog, Charlie Brown! It was a very sad story and a very close call for this six-year-old Chocolate Lab. Charlie Brown’s family decided they no longer wanted him, so on Thursday, November 7th, they took him to the Murray County Animal Shelter in Georgia. With a euthanasia rate of 95%, Charlie Brown only had a slim chance of getting out of the shelter alive.
This shelter euthanizes dogs every Friday. As an owner surrender, there was no holding period for Charlie Brown. He had less than one day to be saved. With only hours to spare, Jesse’s Place Rescue in South Carolina, expressed interest in taking Charlie Brown and another dog, Linus, also scheduled to die on Friday.
The rescue could only take Charlie Brown and Linus if they could find financial help. An urgent request was made to RADAR, and we agreed to assist. On Friday, November 8th, instead of being euthanized, both dogs safely left the shelter. Charlie Brown had his initial vetting done on November 11th. Click here to see more photos of Charlie Brown.
RADAR paid all $146 of Charlie Brown’s initial vetting costs.
UPDATE! Charlie Brown has been adopted! His new family told us this: “He has been the BEST thing to happen to our family. So happy to have him.”
UPDATE! All funds for Charlie Brown have been raised! Thank you!
