The elegant Ellie was facing a deadline—literally. If she did not have a rescue commitment by October 16th, she would be euthanized. Approximately a year old and a Lab mix, Ellie ended up as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on October 10th. She was underweight, scared and heartworm positive.
On October 15th, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina urgently asked RADAR if we could help with Ellie’s heartworm treatment costs. If so, the rescue would pull her. We agreed and Ellie was safely out of the shelter the next day, which would have been her last day alive. Thanks to the response of several donors, we were able to cover more than her heartworm treatment. RADAR paid for her initial vetting on October 17th, her spay on October 22nd and her heartworm treatments on November 27th and 28th.
“Ellie is pure sweetness!” the rescue reported. “She loves to snuggle, give kisses, get her ears scratched, lounge in her crate or curl up in a soft dog bed or blanket. She is calm and gentle and loves plush toys. Ellie loves to romp and run and jump with her foster family’s kids and dogs in the backyard but overall is a very chill young lady. Ellie is looking forward to a forever home where she will know she’s safe, secure, loved, and will get the TLC she deserves!” Click here to view more photos of Ellie.
RADAR paid all of Ellie’s initial vetting, spaying and heartworm treatment costs, totaling $428.
