The shelters where RADAR helps at-risk dogs are usually small and rural. But in the case of Bertie County in North Carolina, there’s not even a building; only outside kennels. And that’s where Charlie ended up when he was surrendered by his owner on February 21st. The one to two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix also faced the challenges of being a black dog and heartworm positive.
On March 3rd, shelter animal advocate Barbara Keller requested RADAR’s help with Charlie. As an incentive for a rescue to take him, we offered to help with his heartworm treatment costs. On March 20th, Second Chance Habitat Rescue in Virginia agreed to take Charlie! He received his heartworm treatment on May 31st.
“Charlie is a people dog,” we were told. “He loves people! He is a very sweet and gentle boy. His happy disposition is infectious! How can anyone resist that gorgeous grin? He loves food and treats. His tail is always wagging. He is a delightful dog!” Click here to view more photos of Charlie.
RADAR paid all of Charlie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $254.
UPDATE! All funds for Charlie have been raised! Thank you!
