Solar is out of this world! This two-year-old Black Lab arrived at the Horry County Animal Care Center in South Carolina as a stray on July 11th. The people at the shelter found that he had a microchip, but when they tried to reach out to the owners, no one responded. Not only was poor Solar feeling lost and confused, but he also tested positive for heartworms. Time was running out for Solar, and he ended up on the euthanasia list.
On August 8th, April Dove, a shelter volunteer, reached out to RADAR to see if we could provide assistance with the cost of Solar’s heartworm treatment, which would give him a better chance at being pulled by a rescue. We agreed, and New England Lab Rescue pulled him on August 11th! Solar received his heartworm treatment on August 17th and 18th. Oh, and just how did Solar get his name? His rescue decided to name him Solar because of the total solar eclipse for South Carolina on August 21, 2017!
Folks at the shelter said this about Solar: “He is very sweet and easy going. He likes attention from the staff and also gets along with other dogs. He keeps a clean kennel which may indicate he is housebroken. He walks good on a leash, but was excited at first due to getting out of the kennel. Once outside, he calms right down but is very curious about his surroundings and ready to explore the play area.” Click here to view more photos of Solar.
RADAR paid $250 towards Solar’s heartworm treatment costs.
