WONDERFUL NEWS!! THE FUNDS FOR HUNTER'S CATARACT SURGERY HAVE BEEN RAISED AND PREPAID. His first visit with Dr. Robert English at the Wilmington, NC office is scheduled for March 29, 2017 -- then the surgery date will be set. A check for the full amount was sent to the Cary Office then we realized that Dr. English has an office close to Hunter's foster home so we transferred his records there and he will not have to go through a lot of transports! We are so grateful to all those wonderful compassionate people who have helped Hunter to be able to see once again and will keep everyone posted on his surgery! Bless each and every one of you!!
Hi! I am Hunter, a Schnauzer/Poodle mix. I am micro-chipped, am heart-worm negative, have all my vaccinations, been neutered and on the 17th of January I received a dental with extractions. Although myu brother and I are bonded we may be placed separately because our foster mom feels that we could be placed separately at this point. Now that we are in the care of SRC we have been evaluated for more than 2 weeks by our foster family. My brother's name is Marshall (SRC#1851). He is a Schnauzer/Westie. Both dogs have European (ie natural) tails.
(SRC#1852) HUNTER'S Story
HUNTER with this unique identification number: (SRC#1852) recently came into SRC's custody and care. Once vetted this dog will be prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process. Hunter and his brother, Marshall were put into a Humane Society when their loving owner had to go into a nursing home and could no longer care for them. Obviously they have been very loved because these are the sweetest dogs ever! He and his brother love each other and are very good with people. They tend to ignore other canines but we do not know how they are with cats. We have been told that they do not do well with them. Hunter has cataracts yet he is not blind. He does depend on Marshall more because of them yet he gets around quite well on his own. Once he can see on his own both dogs will be able to be placed separately. HUNTER is a Schnoodle who weighs 17 pounds while MARSHALL is a Schnauzer/Westie who weighs 19 pounds and both are approximately 5 - 7 years old.
Basically ready for adoption once we complete the cataract surgery for Hunter, both these dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, dentals, and examined by a vet with any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that these dogs could be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of their Evaluations. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team.
THIS DOG IS BEING FOSTERED IN LELAND,NC AND YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO DRIVE TO THAT LOCATION IN ORDER TO PICK THE DOG UP AT THERE WHEN THIS CANINE IS ADOPTED.
