Elvis switched his shelter name of Peanut for a new star quality name and a new future. This four-year-old Beagle mix had arrived at the Warren County Animal Ark shelter in North Carolina as a stray on February 17th. A very good boy, he sat in the shelter due to testing heartworm positive. Elvis needed to leave the shelter as it was crowded, but he sat there with no rescue interest due to the cost of treating his heartworms.

On March 4th, RescueConnect Animal Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR for funding to finance Elvis’ heartworm treatment. We committed to help Elvis get his second chance. He had his initial vetting done on March 23rd and received his heartworm treatments on April 14th and 15th.

Elvis left the shelter and quickly went to a foster-to-adopt home. He is super sweet and loves people and other dogs. Elvis loves to sniff around the yard, play with his toys, snuggle and howl with the neighbor dogs, as befits his beagle heritage. With his adoption finalized, we can report that Elvis has left the rescue! Be sure to view more photos in Elvis’s gallery.

RADAR paid all of the initial vetting and heartworm treatment costs for Elvis, which totaled $282.

UPDATE! Elvis has been adopted!
