To paraphrase Barry Manilow, “Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl!” Well, her name is Lola, and she is stunning enough to be a show dog. However, instead of being at the Copacabana, this Lola was at the Orangeburg County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Two-year old Lola, a Labrador Retriever mix, arrived there when her owner surrendered her and her five-year-old RADAR-assisted mother, Daisy, on July 25th. Both dogs faced three hurdles to finding adopters or rescues: they were large, black and heartworm positive.
With RADAR’s help, Black Dog Rescues in Massachusetts pulled Daisy on August 29th. With Lola three years younger, the rescue thought she had a better chance of getting adopted or rescued than Daisy. But with Lola still lingering in limbo at the shelter several months later, Black Dog Rescues asked for RADAR’s help for her on November 18th. We agreed and Lola finally had a rescue commitment.
Lola had her heartworm treatments on December 19th and January 13th. “Lola is an amazing dog,” the rescue told us. “She is friendly with both dogs and people. While she was very, very shy and terrified at the shelter, she has come out of her shell and now loves everyone!” Click here to view more photos of Lola.
RADAR paid $250 towards Lola’s heartworm treatment costs.
