Lilly is a lively one-year-old Lab mix who was in need of a lot of love when she arrived at the Lenoir County SPCA shelter in North Carolina on September 6th. She had been found as a stray, and when her owners tried to reclaim her, the shelter decided not to give Lilly back to them because she was in poor condition. Lilly was heartworm positive, and needed treatment as soon as possible to live a healthy, happy life. Unfortunately, having heartworms and being a black dog are two potential obstacles that can make it a lot harder for any dog, including lovely Lilly, to be adopted or rescued.
Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR on September 22nd to see if we could help with the cost of Lilly’s heartworm treatment, which would allow the rescue to pull her from the shelter. We agreed to assist, and she was safe! She received her treatment on November 14th.
Folks at the rescue told us that Lilly is a happy girl who loves nothing more than to explore and snuggle. Young in age and at heart, this girl enjoys play time with lots of toys and treats. Given her sweet personality and happy spirit, it’s no surprise that Lilly was adopted shortly after being rescued! To see more photos of Lilly, click here.
RADAR paid all $243 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lilly.
UPDATE! Lilly has been adopted!
