Harley had no time to parley, as time was running out for him at the Harnett County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. A possible Labrador Retriever-Beagle mix, this three-year-old fellow had arrived at the shelter on July 7th. This seemingly perfect dog had just one thing wrong with him but it was a big obstacle to adoption or rescue. Harley tested positive for heartworms. And time was quickly passing in this crowded, rural shelter.
RADAR received an urgent message from Red Barn Rescue in North Carolina on August 6th. Harley was on his final day, and the rescue wanted to help him but needed assistance with the cost of heartworm treatment. We stood up to help Harley and he finished his heartworm treatment on September 29th and 30th.
Harley, who was formerly named Ken, received his current name from his foster because this low-riding dude reminded her of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He is calm and friendly and gets along well with other dogs. He is described as “short and handsome, cool and mellow, a real heart-stealer!” To see more photos of Harley, click here.
RADAR paid all $354 of the heartworm treatment costs for Harley.
UPDATE! Harley has been adopted by his foster!
