To paraphrase Rhett Butler, “Frankie, my dear, we do give a darn!” On June 29th Frankie, a one to two-year-old Labrador Retriever-Hound mix, was admitted to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. He had been a stray and was very thin, but his charming personality won over the staff, where he quickly became a favorite. Unfortunately, he tested heartworm positive. Without an adoption or rescue commitment, Frankie would be more than Gone with the Wind, he’d just be gone.
On June 30th Gretchen Kozen, RADAR’s liaison for Duplin County sought our assistance for Frankie. We provided an offer to help with Frankie’s heartworm treatment to encourage a rescue to take him. On July 7th Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Frankie! He had his initial vetting and neutering done on July 7th and 8th. He began his initial heartworm treatment on July 10th.
“Frankie is very friendly!” we were told. “He is very submissive; when you reach out for him he just hits the ground and waits for loving. He is very affectionate and loves to be around people! Frankie is sweet and playful and great with other dogs. He is going to make a wonderful companion!” Click here to view more photos of Frankie.
RADAR paid all of Frankie’s initial vetting and initial heartworm treatment costs, totalind $206.

UPDATE! Frankie has been adopted by his foster family!
