What’s a Scooter? A two-wheeled, engine-powered vehicle? Of course not! Scooter is a two-year-old Lab mix who ended up at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on November 22nd. Scooter was described to us as a “good boy who has had a tough life,” and sadly, his life got a little tougher when he tested positive for heartworms.

On November 28th, Karen Steers of Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR in hopes that we might be able to help Scooter. The rescue would pull him the next day, but they needed help with the cost of his heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist, and Scooter was safe! He received his treatment on January 11th and 12th.

Scooter loves to explore, and he does a great job with other dogs and people. He was very grateful for the time spent with his foster parents, where he received a lot of well-deserved hugs and snuggles. Folks at the rescue said this about Scooter: “He loves food and thinks he is a kangaroo, gently lifting up on his back legs with his front paws tucked in to better explore the world.” To see more photos of Scooter, click here.

RADAR paid all $193 of the heartworm treatment costs for Scooter.

UPDATE! Scooter has been adopted!
