Meet Manny, the marvelously mild-mannered Spaniel-mix! Somewhere between two and four years old, this guy arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on January 3rd. Not much was known on where he came from or how he got there, but one thing was clear: he was heartworm positive, which put him at risk. He needed help soon, because dogs only have a short amount of time at this very rural shelter.

Thankfully, Heidi McLaughlin and Staci Ventura with Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina were looking out for Manny. On January 9th, they reached out to RADAR to see if we could provide assistance with the cost of Manny’s heartworm treatment, which would bring him one step closer to finding his forever home. We agreed and he was safe! Because the rescue planned to use slow-kill treatment, RADAR would also be able to help with his neutering costs. Manny was neutered and started his heartworm medications just two days later on January 11th!

Manny was described to us as being very sweet, calm natured, and laid back. He has very good kennel manners and is good with other dogs, people, and children. After being adopted by his new family on January 14th, we found out that he loves to cuddle on the couch! To see more photos of Manny, click here.

RADAR paid all $173 of the heartworm treatment medication costs for Manny.

UPDATE! Manny has been adopted!
