Fortunately, enough folks had a hankering to help Hank! Approximately a year old, Hank is a Redbone Coonhound mix who arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on April 14th. We don’t how or why Hank ended up at the shelter, but we do know that this rural shelter was already overcrowded. His life was urgently at risk.
On April 24th Gretchen Kozen, RADAR’s liaison for Duplin County, asked for our help. Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina was interested in pulling Hank if they could get some help with his vetting costs. We agreed and Hank was safe! He had is “freedom ride” to his foster home on April 27th! His initial vetting and neutering took place on April 30th.
Michelle from Love Mutts Rescue shared this with us: “Hank is a sweet and gentle boy who is stealing hearts wherever he goes. His fosters adore him. We are very grateful this boy is heartworm negative, and grateful for all who advocated for him while he was in the shelter. He’s a keeper!” To view more photos of Hank, click here.
RADAR paid $150 towards Hank’s initial vetting and neutering costs.
UPDATE! Hank has been adopted!
