You’ll want to read Oscar’s story to see how he became the Fresh Prince of Bel Air! About four years old, Oscar is believed to be a Labradoodle mix. He arrived as a stray on April 8th at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. As a large black dog in a crowded rural kill shelter, Oscar faced long odds of getting out of the shelter alive. To give Oscar a better chance of getting rescue interest, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his vetting costs.

Oscar was scheduled to be euthanized on April 16th. With only a few hours to spare, RADAR reached out to Patti Power and her Rescue Express in Pennsylvania to see if they could help. They agreed to take Oscar! He left the shelter the same day and went directly to the vet. Unfortunately, he tested heartworm positive. Through no fault of his own, Oscar had not one, but two foster homes that just didn’t work-out. Numerous groups tried to find Oscar the perfect foster home, but no one had any luck. So, Oscar spent two months in boarding at the vet. On May 31st, Oscar received his heartworm treatment.

On June 21st, Oscar was transported to his new adoptive family in Bel Air, Maryland, making Oscar the Fresh Prince of Bel Air! Patti had this to share with us: “It took a village to save this boy. RADAR and Sheila’s financial contributions were amazing and helped so much. Becky took such good care of him at the vet. Mary sprung him from boarding and drove him quite a distance to get him to transport. And Laurie got him to his forever home, driving in the wee hours of the morning.” Click here to view more photos of Oscar.

RADAR paid $250 towards Oscar’s heartworm treatment costs.
