Abraham Lincoln was a big animal lover who wouldn’t hunt or fish. If he were alive today, he just might be running an animal shelter or rescue! As for this Lincoln, he’s a three-year-old Lab mix who arrived as a stray at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 15th. Unfortunately, Lincoln tested heartworm positive, which put him at risk by limiting his adoption or rescue possibilities.

On September 18th, Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR in an effort to save Lincoln. If the costs of his heartworm treatment could be provided, the rescue would take him. We agreed to assist, and Lincoln was safe! He received his heartworm treatment on October 31st and November 1st.

Lincoln’s foster mom had this to share with us: “He truly is a sweetie and just wants to be loved. He’ll follow you and lay right at your feet wherever you are. He’s very well behaved. We took him to restaurants and he was extremely mellow; the kids came up to him and hugged him and he just loved it! And he loves riding in the car with his snout out the window breathing in the fresh air!” To see more photos of Lincoln, click here.

RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lincoln.

UPDATE! Lincoln has been adopted!
