Oh, for the love of Lily! A petite 48-pound, three-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix, Lily was a stray when she entered the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on July 28th. She recently had puppies. She was also extremely malnourished and heartworm positive.
On July 31st, Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina, approached RADAR for a grant to help cover Lily’s heartworm treatment. The shelter had reached out to the rescue, but funding was needed. We agreed right away, and Lily was pulled the very same day! She received her heartworm treatment on September 14th and 15th.
“Lily is putting on weight and regaining her girlish, good figure,” the rescue told us. “From her excellent house manners and desire to be loved, and to socialize with both people and other dogs, at some point she must have been someone’s pet. Lily is very sweet, housebroken, will stay in a crate, but can be trusted loose in the house. She shows no signs of food aggression, walks well on a leash and is not a barker. She is friendly and gentle with all ages. She enjoys time outside in the yard with her foster siblings, but prefers to spend time in the house with her humans or chilling on the couch!” To see more photos of Lily, click here.
RADAR paid all $233 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lily.
UPDATE! Lily has been adopted!
