Charlotte is sweet, affectionate, and a robber of hearts. She’s a two-year-old Black Lab mix who ended up at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 27th when she was surrendered to the shelter by her owner. It’s unclear why she was surrendered, as all she really wanted in life was a little bit of attention and an occasional belly rub. Sadly, Charlotte was heartworm positive, which lessened her chances of being rescued or adopted.
On September 27th, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR to ask for our help with the heartworm treatment costs for Charlotte. If we could help, the rescue would take her. We agreed, and we she was safely out of the shelter the next day! She had her treatment done on October 29th and 30th.
Charlotte’s foster family grew so fond of her that they adopted her! And we can understand why from her description: “She is house trained and has good house manners, but loves to cuddle on the couch if you let her. She is very interested in the world around her. She has quickly learned several commands. She gets along well with other dogs and with children. Despite being a Lab, she is not food motivated, but is highly motivated by praise and attention. She sleeps peacefully all night in her crate. However, she is very difficult to photograph because any time a human gets near her, she gets excited for a potential belly rub!” Click here to view more photos of Charlotte.
RADAR paid all of Charlotte’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $224.
UPDATE! Charlotte has been adopted by her foster family!
