It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Super Cooper! This three-year-old Lab mix arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on January 30th as a stray. While it’s hard to say what he’d been up to before then, it probably had something to do with wearing a cape and saving the world! Sadly, Cooper had his own version of kryptonite: heartworms.
On February 1st, Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Cooper. The rescue wanted to pull him from the shelter the next day, but they still needed some help with his heartworm treatment to make it happen. Knowing how important it was for Super Cooper to get back to saving the planet, we agreed to assist! He got his treatment on March 9th.
When Cooper’s not flying around and using his x-ray vision, he enjoys going on long walks and visiting the creek with his foster family. He enjoys the quiet moments of hanging out with family and cuddling. Despite having super strength, he is not destructive at all–he even let an 18-month-old climb all over him at an event where he got to socialize! Click here to view more photos of Cooper.
RADAR paid all $250 towards Cooper’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Cooper have been raised! Thank you!
