Heck, we just had to help Hector! Approximately one to two years old, Hector is a Labrador Retriever mix who arrived as a stray at the Warren County Animal shelter in North Carolina on June 13th. Sadly, this sweet boy was heartworm positive. Hector had no rescue or adopter interest at this small rural shelter, which was filled to capacity.
On July 1st, shelter animal advocate Barbara Keller asked for RADAR to help with Hector. We provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On July 11th, Second Chance Animal Habitat in Virginia agreed to take Hector! He received his heartworm treatment on August 29th and 30th.
“Hector has a great personality!” the rescue told us. “He is a very social and friendly dog who gets along well with other dogs and loves his humans. He is calm and obedient, and seems quite smart.” To see more photos of Hector, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Hector.
UPDATE! All funds for Hector have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Hector has been adopted!
