To save this beautiful brindle boy, it would require folks to rally around Riley. A one-year-old Labrador Retriever-Plott Hound mix, Riley arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on December 10th. We don’t know how or why Riley ended up in the shelter, but we do know that testing heartworm positive at this rural overcrowded high-kill shelter put his life at risk.

On December 19th, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, Gretchen Kozen, requested our help with Riley. We provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On December 22nd, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Riley He had his neutering done on January 13th and received his initial heartworm treatment medications.

“Riley’s very sweet!” his foster told us. “He loves attention. He likes to explore and go for walks. He gets very, very excited for attention and will occasionally jump, however, he was easily redirected with that. He is so unique in looks and has the most expressive eyes. I feel Riley will be a good fit for someone willing to give him the time and attention he deserves. Overall, a nice dog.” To view more photos of Riley, click here.

RADAR paid $250 towards Riley’s neutering and heartworm treatment medication costs.
