It’s no coincidence that this dog is named Radar, having received his name after RADAR stepped in to help him in his hour of need. A four-year-old Lab mix, this guy ended up at the Horry County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on February 1st. He came in as a stray, and sadly, no one had claimed him for weeks. To top it all off, he was heartworm positive. No rescue or adopter had spoken up for him.
On February 21st, with just twenty-four hours left before he was scheduled to be euthanized, Radar’s chances of being saved were dwindling by the minute. Heather Labbe with the New England Lab Rescue in Maine made an urgent plea to RADAR to see if we could help. If we could provide assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment, the rescue would commit to taking him. We immediately agreed and he was safe!
The next day Heather shared this with us: “This dog was due to die this morning, but instead, because of your amazing organization, he gets to leave the shelter and live. Instead of going into the euthanasia room this morning, he got to walk out the door to a new life! We are calling him Radar in honor of what you did for him.”
Radar received his heartworm treatment on February 25th. We were told that he walks great on a leash and he does not mind other dogs. “He is a great boy,” Heather said. “We are so glad he is alive.” Click here to view more photos of Radar.
RADAR paid all of Radar the Dog’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $355.
