Lucky had been anything but lucky. And just when his luck was about to run out completely on February 24th, Lucky got very, very lucky! Two years old and a Shepherd-Terrier mix, Lucky arrived at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on January 9th. For weeks on end, no one showed any interest in Lucky. The advocacy group Friends of Lee County NC Animals had shared this about Lucky on Facebook: “This poor boy is being completely overlooked. He is not old, he is not injured or sick, he is not a cute puppy. He is just an average-looking dog and is, at this point, forgotten. Please save this sweet boy!” Lucky was scheduled to be euthanized on February 24th.
Anne Shapiro and her Fetch Wisconsin Rescue in Wisconsin contacted RADAR early on February 24th to see if we could assist so that the rescue could take Lucky. We immediately agreed, and Lucky had lucked out! Instead of being euthanized, Lucky left the shelter alive on February 24th. He went directly to the vet for his initial vetting and neutering.
Anne told us this about Lucky and his situation: “He is going to go to a trainer for a month or two. He had displayed some dog aggression at the shelter. I know this could have been just his behavior in the shelter setting, but we need to make sure. Lucky’s dog aggression should not have caused him to die.” Click here to view more photos of Lucky.
RADAR paid $150 towards Lucky’s initial vetting and neutering costs.
