Midnight is a beautiful black Lab mix who was an innocent victim of chemical burns. No one seems to know for sure when, where, why, or how this happened to Midnight. Even though the burn was healing, Midnight was in grave danger at the high-kill Walton County Animal Control shelter in Georgia. With no adopter or rescue in sight, Midnight faced being euthanized on Friday, August 24th. Somehow, she got a reprieve, but only until Monday, August 27th.
Lori Heath, an ardent advocate for animals in Georgia, spent the weekend pulling out all the stops to get Midnight into a rescue. As part of that process, she contacted RADAR first thing Saturday morning. RADAR immediately offered to pay Midnight’s initial vetting as an incentive to get a rescue to pull her.
RADAR committed to cover up to $100 of Midnight’s initial vetting costs.
By Monday morning Midnight was safe! Animal Alliance, a New Jersey rescue, agreed to take Midnight. Kathe Dotson, a rescue agent with C.A.R.L. (Companion Animal Rescue League) in Georgia pulled Midnight from the shelter just hours before she was to be euthanized.
Kathe took Midnight to Planned PEThood of Georgia on August 28th for her initial vetting and spaying. As it turns out, she had previously been spayed, so the cost was only $44. Even more good news: Midnight is heartworm negative. Click here to see more photos of Midnight.
