Presenting Adalia: the dog, the problem and the solution.
The dog. Adalia is a two-year-old Coonhound mix., who is described as being a lovely, sweet girl. She does great with other dogs, and seems okay with kids and cats. Everyone who meets her just loves her! Click here to view more photos of Adalia.
The problem. Adalia arrived at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on June 18th. While it’s not known how or why she ended up at the shelter, we do know that Adalia tested positive for heartworms. Although North Country Pet Adoption Services rescue in New York expressed interest in taking her, there was still one obstacle to overcome: the cost of her heartworm treatment.
The Solution. Patti Gorby with the rescue reached out to RADAR for our help on July 6th. We agreed to assist, and Adalia was safe! She had her heartworm treatment done on August 21 and 22nd. Adalia was fortunate enough to be transported to New York a week before Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas. Sadly, the Adopt-An-Angel rescue’s clinic in Wilimington, North Carolina, where Adalia received her treatment, suffered devastating damage from the extensive flooding.
RADAR paid all of Adalia’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $400.
UPDATE! Adalia has been adopted!
