Without RADAR’s assistance, Rob would have been robbed of his life. This three-year-old Redbone Coonhound arrived at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter in Kershaw County, South Carolina on September 27th. Rob was brought to the shelter as a stray by animal control. It was thought that he had been hit by a vehicle and had injured his back left leg. He was in pain and the leg appeared to be broken. However, during his 10-day holding period, the shelter could only provide him with pain medications.
Meanwhile, Jessica Caughman, the rescue coordinator at the shelter, reached out for RADAR’s help. The shelter had no funding options to get Rob to the vet for a thorough exam and x-rays once his hold was up, which meant he would be euthanized. We agreed to cover the cost, and on October 8th Rob went to the vet. The x-rays indicated that his hip was dislocated, probably for quite some time. Surgery would be necessary. Despite the cost, funds were quickly raised by the shelter, and Rob had his surgery done on October 15th.
“Rob is very outgoing and loves to be the center of attention,” Jessica told us. ” Now that he is no longer in pain, he has really shown his true colors. He loves to be around kids, and would do great in a family setting. Rob is such a very sweet dog!” Click here to see more photos of Rob.
RADAR paid all of Rob’s initial exam and x-ray costs, totaling $125.
