Yes siree, Mr. Bob! No longer able to care for Mr. Bob, his elderly owner surrendered the four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix to the small outdoor Bertie County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on October 6th. Mr. Bob was not only full of energy and life, but also heartworms. The combination of being a black dog, with heartworms and in a rural shelter did not bode well for Mr. Bob.
On November 3rd, shelter animal advocate Barbara Keller reached out to RADAR for assistance with Mr. Bob. As an incentive for a rescue to take Mr. Bob, we provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment. On November 10th, Rainbow Animal Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Mr. Bob! He was neutered on December 1st and received his heartworm treatment on December 7th.
“Mr. Bob is the hardest dog I’ve ever tried to photograph!” Jackie Stanley with Rainbow Animal Rescue told us. “He’s super friendly and loves attention. Don’t let that little bit of white on his muzzle fool you, he still has plenty of energy. What a sweet dog!” Click here to view more photos of Mr. Bob.
RADAR paid $250 towards Mr. Bob’s heartworm treatment and neutering costs.
UPDATE: All the funding for Mr. Bob has been provided.
