The state of Montana got its name from the Spanish word for mountain. This Montana, a two-year-old Retriever-Mountain Dog mix, had a mountain to move after he ended up as a stray at the Harnett County Shelter in North Carolina on May 16th. The shelter had experienced a large intake of dogs that week, and Montana was in danger. He tested positive for heartworms and was at risk of being euthanized. It seemed like that mountain just wouldn’t budge.

On May 21st, when Red Barn Rescue in North Carolina requested RADAR’s help with Montana’s heartworm treatment costs so they could pull him, we agreed at once. He received his heartworm treatment one month later on June 21st.

The rescue shared this with us: “Montana is a gentle and lovable boy who enjoys walks. He gets along well with other dogs.” And then we had this wonderful update on June 23rd: “This fantastic dog has been adopted! He is recovering from his heartworm treatment in his new home. He is a uniquely happy and now healthy dog! RADAR’s assistance was truly helpful. Thanks again!” Click here to view more photos of Montana.

RADAR paid all of Montana’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $354.

UPDATE! Montana has been adopted! His forever Mom, Lyndsey said that Montana is “loving life with his forever family!”

UPDATE! All funds for Montana have been raised! Thank you!
