Well, I’ll bee, here’s Honey! Approximately three years old, Honey is a Labrador Retriever-Hound mix who arrived as a stray on March 30th at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. To bee, or not to bee pregnant, that was the question about Honey when she arrived at the shelter. Either way, her life was in grave danger at this rural shelter.
On April 1st Gretchen Kozen, RADAR’s liaison for Duplin County, asked for our help. Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina was interested in pulling Honey if they could get some assistance with her vetting costs. We agreed and Honey was safely out of the shelter on April 2nd! When Honey went for her initial vetting on May 27th, it still was not clear if she was pregnant. An x-ray revealed a mass of undetermined origin. The vet suggested a follow-up x-ray, and when that was done on June 6th, the mass was gone and she was spayed.
The rescue told us this about Honey: “She is a happy dog and is as sweet as can be. And although she is a larger dog, she thinks she is a lap dog! She loves to snuggle and is very laid back. She is fine with cats and also does well with other dogs. She is an all-around wonderful dog!” To see more photos of Honey, click here.
RADAR paid $150 towards the initial vetting, x-ray and spaying costs for Honey.
UPDATE! Honey has been adopted and is doing great in her now home!
