‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a…Labrador Retriever! Midnight, also known as Connor, had only one thing on his wish list to Santa this year: a home. Somewhere between two and three years old, this guy arrived at the Horry County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 15th as a stray. Even though the shelter staff liked him a lot, Midnight didn’t get much interest from potential adopters, and the clock was ticking.
Turns out, Midnight was even more at risk because he tested heartworm positive. With little room for him at the shelter, he ended up on the euthanasia list. On December 1st, Heather Labbe with the New England Lab Rescue in Maine contacted RADAR to see if we could help. If we could provide assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment, Midnight would be one step closer to having his wish come true. We agreed, and he was safe! Midnight had his heartworm treatment on December 11th.
Midnight has been described as a great dog and a gentle giant. Though he is a bit shy, he gets along well with others. The folks at the New England Lab Rescue decided on Midnight’s name with the holiday spirit in mind. Every year, Santa arrives at the stroke of midnight to bring all the gifts, and this guy just got the greatest gift of all: the gift of life! To see more photos of Midnight, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Midnight.
