Famous country singer Loretta Lynn was once quoted as saying this: “In the long run, you make your own luck – good, bad, or indifferent.” This Loretta, a three-year-old Lab mix, knows what it’s like to have to make your own luck. On June 22nd, she ended up at the Onslow County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina as a stray. Her history was unknown, but it was clear that she was in bad condition. Loretta had an entropion left eye, and was also heartworm positive, which made her chances of being rescued or adopted a lot slimmer.
On July 16th, Karen Steers with Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina contacted RADAR to ask if we could help with Loretta’s heartworm treatment. If so, the rescue would take her. We agreed and Loretta was safely out of the shelter two days later! She received her heartworm treatments on August 23rd and 24th.
“Loretta is very sweet, happy, and gentle,” Karen told us. “She knows some basic commands and she does well on a leash. She gets along well with other dogs and would be a wonderful addition for an active family.” Click here to view more photos of Loretta.
RADAR paid all of Loretta’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $291.
