Hark! It’s Stark! He’s a great dog for the park, or to go out for a lark, or induce a bark. And with his white coat, Stark is easy to see in the dark! Eight years old and a German Shepherd, Stark arrived at the Harnett County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on July 23rd. There was no indication of why or how Stark ended up at the shelter. As a large and senior dog in this small and crowded rural shelter, Stark’s life was certainly at risk.
On July 28th Chris Leone, a RADAR supporter and advocate for the Harnett County Animal Shelter dogs, asked us to help save Stark. We provided an offer to help cover Stark’s vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On July 28th, Southeast German Shepherd Rescue, operating out of North Carolina and Virginia, agreed to take Stark! He received his initial vetting and neutering on July 31st.
The rescue shared this with us about Stark: “He gets along well with all other dogs. He’s very sweet, knows basic commands and loves people. He leans into you when you pet him. If you have a treat for him, he’ll be your best friend! He love walks, but will also be content to lie right by your side and have his head scratched.” Click here to view more photos of Stark.
RADAR paid all of the $226 for Stark’s initial vetting and neutering costs.
