In order to save Max, no one could be lax! On the first day of December, Max arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. This eighteen-month-old Mastiff mix had a number of issues: mange, an injured leg and an upper respiratory infection. Max (known as Bull while at the shelter) was in urgent need of rescue from this small rural high-kill shelter.
On December 2nd, Gretchen Kozen, a Duplin animal advocate, asked RADAR for help with Max. As an incentive for a rescue to pull Max, we provided an offer to assist with his vetting costs. On December 4th, Carolina Mastiff Rescue agreed to take Max, and he was safely whisked away to his foster home the same day! he was briefly quarantined, and then had his vetting and medical treatments completed on December 19th. Max still has a long road to full recovery.
The folks with the Carolina Mastiff Rescue had this to share with us: “Max is sweet and goofy! He loves when his foster parents come home. He knows that he will get all the belly rubs he wants. And, he also gets to sleep on the couch next to them. Max loves peanut butter sandwiches!” Click here to view more photos of Max.
RADAR paid $200 towards Max’s initial vetting and treatment costs.
