For Pete’s sake, RADAR has another Jake! This five-year-old Cattle Dog-Shepherd mix, along with Bella, a five-year-old Shepherd mix, arrived together at the Beaufort County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on June 26th. Not much is known about Jake and Bella, including if they were strays or owner surrenders, but we suspect the latter.
On June 30th, the volunteers with ENC Shelter Dogs, an advocacy group for shelter dogs in eastern and central North Carolina, spread the word about Jake and Bella. On July 3rd, Rural Dog Rescue in Washington, DC, expressed interest in taking both dogs! When it was discovered that Jake was heartworm positive (Bella was not), the rescue contacted RADAR to see if we could assist. While the rescue was prepared to cover all the other costs, they were hoping to have some assistance with Jake’s heartworm treatment costs. We offered to provide $250.
Jake received his initial heartworm treatment on July 22nd in North Carolina, with RADAR’s $250 covering most of the costs. Jake will have the remainder of his treatment done after he gets transported to the rescue. Click here to view more photos of Jake (and Bella).
RADAR paid $250 towards Jake’s heartworm treatment costs.
