Patty has a sleek black Labrador Retriever coat. Between two and three years old, Patty arrived at the Scotland County Humane Society shelter in North Carolina as a stray on February 25th. Patty impressed the shelter workers with her very gentle temperament and affection for people. Nothing is known about Patty’s past except that her owners did not give her heartworm preventative medication, as she tested positive for heartworms. Being a black dog (less likely to be adopted) and heartworm positive diminished Patty’s chances for rescue.

Karen Steers, of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina, requested RADAR’s assistance for Patty’s heartworm treatment costs on February 27th. The rescue needed help with the costs so that they could pull her from the shelter and find her a new home. We committed to Patty (we think she is beautiful!) and she completed her heartworm treatment on March 31st.

And now the best part of the story: Patty has been adopted! Her forever mom, Joelle told us that “my husband and I have always joked about having a dog named Patty. So when we first learned about her through a co-worker we knew it was meant to be. Upon first meeting her we knew she would be coming home with us to her new furever home! She has been such to treat to have in our home and is an incredibly sweet dog. She is perfectly content laying on her big dog bed to take a snooze or sit at our feet while we’re in the kitchen. You never know how much you were missing out on by not having a dog until you finally get one. Patty brings so much joy to our lives and we look forward to giving her the fulfilling life she deserves.” Be sure to view more photos in Patty’s gallery.

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