Poor Coco was living like a hobo. He was picked up as a stray and taken to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on February 3rd. Coco, a Beagle mix, is estimated to be two years old. Unfortunately, he tested heartworm positive. Coco’s life was on the line at this small rural shelter.
On February 4th Gretchen Kozen, RADAR’s liaison for Duplin County, asked for our help for Coco. In order to encourage a rescue to take Coco, we provided an offer to help with his vetting costs. On February 8th, Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina stepped up to take Coco! On February 10th he was neutered and he began his heartworm treatment on February 12th.
“Coco is a very calm, quiet fella,” the rescue told us. “He is very good on a leash and doesn’t pull. He rides well in the car. He looks bigger in his pictures, but he is a small dog!” To see more photos of Coco, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards Coco’s neutering and heartworm medication costs.
