Sometimes an intervention is needed. And that’s just what happened with Monroe. When DogGone Shelter Intervention in South Carolina noticed Monroe, a two-year-old Labradoodle mix, and his friend Ginger, on a Craigslist posting, they intervened to prevent the dogs from getting into the wrong hands or ending up in the Marlboro County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Their owners surrendered them to DogGone Shelter Intervention on February 6th, and the group began looking to find a rescue for the dogs.
When Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont expressed interest in taking Monroe, there was just one problem: he was heartworm positive and funds would be needed to cover his heartworm treatment. On March 16th, Kim Frigault with the rescue turned to RADAR for help. We agreed to assist, and Monroe had himself a rescue commitment!
Monroe, who also went by the fitting nickname of Shaggy, had his heartworm treatment done on May 11th. His foster mom had these notes about one of Monroe’s days with her: “He went for a four-mile walk today. He consumed all of his breakfast with enthusiasm and he has moved all toys to his dog bed!” To see more photos of Monroe, click here.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Monroe, which totaled $300.
UPDATE! Monroe has been adopted! His new name is Spock!
