Klondike, March 2003
Klondike is the March Buddy Arnold Memorial Fund Dog
This handsome six year old chocolate Lab was found wandering as a stray. He was taken in by a kind family who appreciated his gentle nature and friendly ways but were unable to keep him. The family placed ads in the local newspapers and contacted the area shelters in an attempt to find the dog's owners, but no one came forward to claim the wanderer.
Klondike was then taken under the wing of Lake Erie Labrador Retriever Rescue and placed in one of their foster homes. A visit to a local vet revealed that Klondike was in generally good health although he unfortunately tested positive for heartworm. LELRR was able to cover most of the costs of caring for Klondike, including veterinary treatment and good food, but they applied to LABMED for help in funding the heartworm treatment.
The treating veterinarian provided some discounted services, and with the funds granted by LABMED, Klondike will be able to start his new life free from heartworms. The vet was most impressed with Klondike's temperament and even thought of a possible adoptive family for Klondike. With prompt treatment, Klondike has an excellent chance of making a complete recovery from the stressful heartworm treatment. His new family will be able to prevent any further heartworm problems with the simple administration of a monthly heartworm preventative. LABMED was happy to help provide a second chance in life for Klondike.
