It was a race to save Trace! This one to two-year-old Pit Bull mix was surrendered to the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on December 17th. Not only did Trace lose his home for the holidays, but now his life was at risk as well. The combination of being a black dog and a Pit Bull mix only added to his plight. He also had some skin issues. As an incentive for a rescue to take Trace, on December 28th, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his vetting costs.
Trace won the race to save his life on January 5th, when Augusta Dog Adoptions in Virginia agreed to take him! On January 8th, Trace received his initial vetting. He was diagnosed and treated for demodex mange and an ear infection in both ears. He had his neutering done on January 13th.
His foster mom shared this with us: “Trace is a gentle sweetheart. He is friendly towards people, dogs and cats. He is an expert cuddler, and would like nothing more than to cuddle on the couch for hours next to his favorite person! As he has settled into my home, he is becoming more playful and has little bursts of energy accompanied by a wagging tail!” To see view more photos of Trace, click here.
RADAR paid all of the initial vetting, treatment and neutering costs for Trace, totaling $218.
