Charlie Brown was right when he said, “In the book of life, the answers aren’t in the back.” For this Charlie Brown, an eight-year-old Chocolate Lab, life took a few unfortunate turns. He arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on October 17th. Even though his owner was found, he did not want Charlie Brown back. Poor Charlie Brown was missing most of his teeth, and needed the rest to be pulled, but that was the least of his problems. Being a senior dog and testing positive for heartworms would make finding his forever home a difficult task.
On October 22nd, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR to ask for our assistance with the heartworm treatment costs for Charlie Brown. If we could help, the rescue would take him. We agreed at once, and he left the shelter the same day! He had his heartworm treatments done on December 3rd and 4th.
The rescue had this to say about Charlie Brown: “He loves every person he meets, big and small. He loves his daily walks. He is easy to train and is learning to sit and wait for treats and food. Charlie Brown loves to play with toys, and to fetch and play with a ball!” To see more photos of Charlie Brown, click here.
RADAR paid all $346 of the heartworm treatment costs for Charlie Brown.
