Hunter is on the hunt for something. What is it, you ask? A brand new home! This handsome two-year-old Lab mix arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on May 15th as a stray. Not much was known about where he came from, but folks at the shelter were impressed by his super sweet disposition. Unfortunately, there was one big obstacle holding Hunter back from tracking down his new life: he was heartworm positive.
Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR on June 1st about Hunter. If we could help with the costs of his heartworm treatment, the rescue would pull him from the shelter that same day. We agreed at once! His heartworm treatments took place on July 2nd and 3rd.
“Hunter is handsome!” his foster said. “He loves to follow me around and crawl on top of me to play if I get down on the floor. He has made tremendous progress walking on his Gentle Leader Harness and the longer you go, the more he enjoys it. He can be a little rambunctious, but he listens well to firm commands and gentle corrections with the leash. He needs lots of exercise and he’s a strong, fast dog, so he would be great for an active family with a fenced yard. Hunter will steal your heart!” Click here to view more photos of Hunter.
RADAR paid all of Hunter’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $304.
UPDATE! Hunter has been transferred to the SPCA of Wake County, to give him a better chance of being adopted!
