Just think, if this dog were to recite the story of Noah’s ark, it would be Noah’s bark! Estimated to be seven years old, this Hound mix arrived on February 12th at the Halifax County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. Noah was a stray, and he was very thin. Time was not on Noah’s side. This overcrowded, high-kill shelter only gives dogs 15 days until they are euthanized. On February 18th, Noah was placed on the shelter’s urgent list. Noah needed to get out ASAP.
On February 20th, RADAR supporter Jackie Stanley contacted us about Noah’s plight. The same day we provided an offer to assist with his vet costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. The next day, Hope for Life Rescue in Virginia agreed to take Noah! He safely left the shelter on February 22nd. Poor Noah was so terrified from his shelter experience, that he tried to jump out the car window during his transport to the rescue.
Unfortunately, during his initial vetting Noah tested heartworm positive. He received his heartworm treatment on February 25th and 26th. The folks at the rescue told us this about Noah: “He is doing well with us. He is so sweet, friendly and loving! Everyone adores him. Noah has the funniest personality, and is a joy to have around!” Click here to view more photos of Noah.
RADAR paid $250 towards Noah’s heartworm treatment costs.
