A divorce led to three dogs being left alone in an apartment for a week, which led to the three dogs being surrendered to the Last Chance Animal Shelter in Pocahontas County, WV, in early March.
One of the dogs is Libby, a 4-year-old Beagle, who loves children and playing ball, gets along well with other dogs, and would be an ideal family dog. But Libby has a skin irritation on her back and needs to have it treated. Once that’s taken care of, and she gets her vaccines and heartworm testing, she’ll be good to go!

We also helped Sugar. The third dog, Lance, a Pit Bull, has already been adopted.
While the folks at Last Chance Animal Shelter are trying very hard to create a no-kill community by working with rescues to get their animals to loving homes, they have very limited resources, and no funds to cover the vet costs for Libby.
RADAR has committed to pay the estimated $100 of initial vet care costs for Libby and Sugar (depending on the test results, we will help with additional costs). This will help not only provide Libby with the necessary vet care for her skin condition, but will bring both dogs up-to-date on their vaccines and heartworm testing, making them much more likely to be adopted or taken by a rescue.
UPDATE! RADAR has now PAID $88 for both Libby and Sugar’s vet visit!! Thankfully, Libby didn’t have anything worse than a flea dermatitis, which is being treated, and both are HW negative!
UPDATE! We just found out that Libby was adopted on May 25th!
