Addy’s life before she ended up in the shelter was none too fabby. A hound mix around five years old, she was brought into the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on November 14th as a stray. Addy was good with the other dogs at the shelter but had some problems keeping her from being adopted or rescued: not only were her teeth broken and worn down from possibly chewing on a chain or fence, but Addy was also heartworm positive.
On November 22nd, Patti Gorby with North Country Pet Adoption Services in New York asked for RADAR’s help with vetting costs. If we could help, the rescue would take Addy. We agreed to help, and the next day Addy was safe and out of the shelter! Addy’s teeth were in such poor shape that when she had her dental treatment done on December 20th, she needed twelve teeth extracted!
Addy’s foster mom reports that she is “super sweet and loves the kids and naps with her kids.” Addy is a laid-back kind of dog and “the couch is her favorite place.” She needs to lose a few pounds and says “she’s gotta look her best when she goes up for adoption!” To see more photos of Addy, click here.
RADAR paid all $672 of the dental surgery and treatment costs for Addy.
