There’s Stan the Man and then there’s Stan the Dog! Approximately two years old, Stan is a Chihuahua mix who was surrendered to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 12th. He was very calm and sweet, but testing heartworm positive meant that most rescues would not take Stan. As an owner surrender, there was no time to spare since he was at risk for being euthanized at any time at this overcrowded rural shelter.
On August 16th, Marlianne Midyette with Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina urgently requested our help for Stan. If we could help with his vetting costs, she would take Stan. We agreed and Stan was safe! His initial vetting and neutering took place on August 17th, which is also when he began his heartworm treatment.
“He is very sweet and loving,” Marlianne told us. “He wants to sit next to you on the couch and snuggle. He is really good on a leash. He gets along well with people and cats. He seems to prefer submissive girl dogs over large boy dogs. He also loves hanging out in the yard for short periods of time.” Click here to view more photos of Stan.
RADAR paid all of Stan’s initial vetting, neutering and heartworm treatment medication costs, which totaled $191.
UPDATE! Stan has been adopted by his foster mom, Wendi LeConey!
UPDATE! All funds for Stan have been raised! Thank you!
