No one is as cool as Cole! This two- to three-year old Black Lab mix ended up at the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on June 5th. Originally, someone called the shelter about Cole being a stray, but it turned out that a family member had left him behind. The family member eventually called the shelter and said that they would come get Cole… but they never did. Sadly, there was more bad news: Cole was heartworm positive, which lowered his chances of being rescued or adopted.
On June 14th, Mayberry 4 Paws, an organization that specializes in helping at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Cole. With RADAR’s assistance for his heartworm treatment, they would pull him. We agreed, and Cole was out of the shelter and in a foster home the next day! He received his heartworm treatment on June 20th.
Mayberry 4 Paws told us this about Cole: “He is an energetic young man who has never met a stranger. He’s great with people, and he absolutely loves the company and playtime of other doggies. He loves attention and knows a few commands; he will sit if not too distracted and does well on a leash. Cole is also a “leaner” – he loves to get close to you, lean in, and get belly rubs and ear scratches!” Click here to view more photos of Cole.
RADAR paid all of Cole’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
UPDATE! All funds for Cole have been raised! Thank you!
