Moose are known for their massive antlers and sheer size, weighing as much as 1,200 pounds. This Moose, a three-year-old Bully Breed mix, might not be quite as big as an actual moose, but he’s just as awesome! This handsome fellow ended up at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on March 2nd. Being a stray, not much was known about Moose, but it was clear that he needed help. He had a cherry eye and he was heartworm positive, both of which deterred rescues or adopters from saving him.
Anna Cilento, founder and director of Suruluna Animal Rescue in New York, took notice of Moose and wanted to pull him from the shelter, but needed assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment. She reached out to RADAR for help, and we agreed to assist! Moose received his treatment on May 2nd and 3rd. He also had surgery done on his eye.
Anna had only good things to say about Moose. She told us that “he is so mellow and sweet, and is really one of the most amazing dogs we ever had. Moose is a beautiful sweet boy who loves everyone, and a very mellow big boy.” While Moose has certainly been through some hard times, there was a light at the end of the tunnel for him. As he finished recovering from surgery, a family with five kids were waiting to take him home! Be sure to view more photos in Moose’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $300 of the heartworm treatment costs for Moose.
UPDATE! Moose has been adopted!
