Yes, there is Pepper to go with this Salt! Two to three years old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Salt, along with her four-month-old black puppy, Pepper, were surrendered to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 24th. While Pepper would have no problem getting rescued or adopted, it was an entirely different situation with Salt. She tested heartworm positive, and this put her at high risk of being euthanized at this overcrowded rural shelter.
Gretchen Kozen, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR’s liaison for the shelter, requested our assistance for Salt. We provided an offer to assist with her costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. On September 28th, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Salt! She received her initial vetting, spaying and first heartworm medications on November 3rd.
The rescue had this to tell us about Salt: “She is a sweetheart. She is a little scared at first, but once she trusts you, she is all about you! She gets a little rough during playtime with other dogs, so she needs a home with dogs at least the same size as her and probably no cats. She misses her pup Pepper, but is looking forward to her forever home” To view more photos of Salt, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the initial vetting, spaying and heartworm medication costs for Salt.
UPDATE! Salt has been adopted!
