Dill was in a pickle! On December 14th, Dill showed up at someone’s house as a stray. For his safety, they took him to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. Dill, a Beagle mix, was approximately seven years old, had some arthritis in his back legs, was not neutered and needed dental care. The shelter staff described him as friendly to both dogs and people, but tired and sad.
Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for the at-risk dogs at this shelter, asked for RADAR’s help with Dill on December 16th. The shelter was full, which put Dill at high risk of being euthanized. We agreed to assist. A few days later, Triangle Beagle Rescue of North Carolina came forward to take Dill. He had his initial vetting done on January 6th, and was neutered and received his dental treatment on January 11th.
We were told that “Dill has a great disposition and he makes his foster family smile and giggle constantly. He loves exploring the fenced in backyard, going for walks and naps (of course!). Dill loves hugs, snuggles and plenty of play time.” Luckily, Dill didn’t have to wait long for his forever home! On January 21st, Dill was adopted! His new human mother wanted to surprise her teenage daughter, so she arranged to get Dill while her daughter was taking the SATs. She then picked up her daughter with Dill in the car! Dill now lives in his forever home with two other dogs as siblings. To see more photos of Dill, click here.
RADAR paid all of Dill’s initial vetting, neutering and dental treatment costs, which totaled $188.
