The previous dog RADAR assisted was a German Shepherd mix named Cecil. And what’s the only double-syllable word that rhymes with Cecil? Yes, it’s Diesel! And Diesel is another German Shepherd mix. Approximately one year old, Diesel arrived at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on April 8th. For whatever reason, this wonderful dog was surrendered to the shelter by his owners. In doing so, Diesel’s life was put in grave danger.
With no adopter or rescue interest, and the small shelter filled to capacity, Diesel was scheduled to die on April 23rd. As an incentive for a rescue to take Diesel, on April 22nd, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his vetting. Thanks to the prompt response of Seven Star Rescue in Michigan in agreeing to take Diesel, his life was saved!
Diesel’s initial vetting took place on April 24th. The volunteer group Friends of Lee County NC Animals posted this about Diesel: “He is a very friendly guy. He’s great with people and other dogs. Diesel’s a great Shepherd mix who needs a home with an active family so that he can play as he grows!” To view more photos of Diesel, click here.
RADAR paid all of Diesel’s initial vetting costs of $97.
UPDATE! Diesel has been adopted!
