The saga of Sissy is a sad one. The five-year-old Bully Breed mix was surrendered to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on January 4th. Her owner could not care for her anymore. Evidently, the owner never did provide much care for Sissy, as she had to be treated for lesions on her neck caused by a chain. She had spent her entire life on a chain. And it was no surprise that she tested heartworm positive.
On February 17th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s assistance with Sissy’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help to better enable Sissy to get adopted or rescued. She was spayed on February 20th, and then had her heartworm treatment done on February 27th and 28th.
“Sissy is with a foster now,” Kristin shared with us. “She is happy, happy, happy! She’s an energetic girl who is trying to make up for lost time. She loves to play with people and other dogs.” To see more photos of Sissy, click here.
RADAR paid all $294 of the heartworm treatment costs for Sissy.
