Coco Chanel was famous for her No. 5, but this Coco will have to settle for being famous as RADAR-assisted dog No. 249! Coco, a five-year-old Lab-Shepherd mix, and her canine stepsister Dixie, a five-year old Shepherd mix, were living the good life together. Then their owner died. On June 22nd, these two very happy and loving dogs suddenly found themselves in the Beaufort County Animal Control shelter in Washington, North Carolina.
As if it wasn’t bad enough that their owner died, now both dogs faced death as well. As an incentive for a rescue to pull one or (hopefully) both dogs, RADAR immediately provided an offer to assist with both Coco and Dixie. With only a few hours to spare, Black Dogs & Company Rescue in Maryland agreed to take both Coco and Dixie! RADAR supporter Cindy Hagan recently started this rescue.
Coco and Dixie were safely out of the shelter on June 27th, and went directly for their initial vetting. Both dogs, unfortunately, tested heartworm positive. The rescue will treat them once they are in Maryland. RADAR not only paid the initial vetting costs, but also paid for the temporary vet boarding fees for Dixie and Coco from June 27th until their transport on July 6th.

RADAR paid all of Coco’s $90 initial vetting costs and $117 vet boarding fees, for a total of $207.
