The name Harper is of English origin and literally means “harp player.” This Harper, a three-and-a-half-year-old Shepherd mix, doesn’t know how to play the harp, but she does know how to be a wonderful best bud! Harper ended up at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 18th. Harper’s chances of being rescued or adopted were slim, due to her being a black dog and having heartworms.
On September 22nd, Keri Telliho with Best Friend Pet Adoption rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR for help. They wanted to pull Harper from the shelter, but they needed assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist, and she got her treatment on October 30th and 31st!
Harper, who was first known as Charm when she arrived at the shelter, was described to us as being very sweet and playful. She’ll make a great new family member for anyone, human or otherwise, because she adapts well to different routines and she gets along with other dogs! Click here to view more photos of Harper.
RADAR paid all of Harper’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
UPDATE! All funds for Harper have been raised! Thank you!
