In the case of Chase, we’ll cut to the chase: the shelter was no safe place for Chase. Estimated to be two to four years old, this American Staffordshire Terrier mix arrived on August 2nd as a stray at the Beaufort County Animal Control shelter in Washington, North Carolina. Despite his brindle beauty and being a favorite of the shelter staff, Chase had no adoption or rescue interest. With time running out, Chase was facing a deadly deadline.
On August 27th, RADAR provided an offer to assist with Chase’s veterinary costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. And on September 28th, Peace Ridge Sanctuary in Maine agreed to take Chase! He had his initial vetting done on September 3rd. Unfortunately, he tested heartworm positive. RADAR agreed to assist with the cost of his heartworm treatment, which was done on September 11th.
The shelter staff had these comments on Chase: “He is a good dog. He was tested with a female dog and a larger male dog, and he did great with both. Chase did not show any signs of aggression. He seems to be more of a laid-back dog. Chase is a nice boy to be around!” To see more photos of Chase, click here.
RADAR paid for all of Chase’s initial vetting and heartworm treatment costs totaling $211.
