Whiskey is often used for ‘medicinal purposes’ in old Westerns. And this Whiskey may be just what the doctor ordered for a fortunate adoptive family. This approximately seven-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix arrived at the crowded Horry County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on March 25th. His age and his heartworm positive status made his chances of getting out of the shelter very slim.
RADAR couldn’t turn back the clock for Whiskey, but we could help with his heartworms and other medical needs. On April 3rd, Heather Labbe of the New England Lab Rescue in Maine contacted us with a plea to help save him. We agreed to assist with his medical costs and on April 5th Whiskey was neutered. He finished his heartworm treatment on April 9th, and made his way up the East Coast to New England.
Whiskey is now in a foster home. He is great with other dogs and house trained. He is very laid back and calm. Whiskey is good with people and described as “an all-around very easy, gentle spirit.” This handsome boy is now healthy and ready for a home. Click here to view more photos of Whiskey.
RADAR paid all of Whiskey’s neutering and heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $465.
