Viva Vivian! This two-year-old German Shepherd mix had been previously adopted from the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina. But she was surrendered by her owners in late December. What a horrible holiday season it must have been for poor Vivian. She rang in the New Year back at the shelter, and as a black dog in a crowded shelter, the New Year looked bleak indeed.
The volunteers with the Animal Friends of Lee County got the word out about Vivian. As an at-risk dog, RADAR offered to cover up to $150 in initial vetting costs as an incentive offer for a reputable rescue to take Vivian. On January 9th, RescuedMe, one of RADAR’s partners in North Carolina, found a foster and agreed to take Vivian!
Since Vivian had been previously adopted from the shelter, she had already been spayed. Her initial vetting on January 12th indicated that she was in excellent health, including heartworm negative! Vivian is now being fostered while she awaits her true forever home. Click here to see more photo of Vivian.
RADAR paid all of Vivian’s initial vetting costs of $142.
