George has so much personality, it simply can’t be contained. On September 20th, this two-year-old Lab Pointer mix, who was first known to us as Dusty, arrived at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina as a stray. Poor George lived for even the smallest amount of attention, but spent much of his time curled up in the corner of his pen, unwilling even to lift his head. While that was sad enough, more bad news came when he tested positive for heartworms.
On October 12th, shelter animal advocate Nancy Gump asked for RADAR’s help for George. With our grant assistance for his heartworm treatment, he was able to get a rescue placement with Road Home Rescue in North Carolina. Shortly afterward, George found a permanent rescue with the Red Barn Rescue. He received his heartworm treatment on January 9th.
“As soon as George arrived at Red Barn Rescue,” we were told, “he transformed into a happy, affectionate tail-wagger! He is such a gem. We can only imagine how he would flourish in a loving, happy home!” The rescue didn’t have to imagine for very long; on January 13th he found his forever home!

RADAR paid all $354 of the heartworm treatment costs for George.
UPDATE! George has been adopted! His new name is Chopper!
