Liberty’s past is unknown, but her future is bright, just like the torch on the Statue of Liberty! This two- to three-year-old Labrador Retriever mix arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on January 9th as a stray. This pretty black-furred lady was very sweet but was heartworm positive. Heartworms are expensive to treat and deadly to the dog if left untreated.
Liberty came to the notice of Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina. The rescue wanted to take Liberty but needed help with the cost of treating her heartworms. Karen contacted RADAR on January 10th and asked if we could help. We agreed to help, and Liberty completed her treatment on March 12th.
In her ‘own words’ Liberty says: “Hi! My name is Liberty, Libby for short. Aren’t I the sweetest looking girl you’ve ever seen? That’s because I am! I love playing with my foster sibling, and chew toys. I love chew toys! I also love treats. I am crate and house trained, and am very laid back. You can usually find me hanging out, or resting on the floor (sometimes couch) taking a cat nap. Can I come live with you?” To see more photos of Liberty, click here.
RADAR paid all of Liberty’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $322.
UPDATE! Liberty has been adopted!
