While the name Adele means noble, this Adele found herself in the ignoble situation of being a homeless stray. A one- to two-year-old Boxer mix, Adele arrived at the Surry County Animal Control shelter in early August. Adele was already on borrowed time at this small rural shelter, but when she tested positive for heartworms her chances of getting out the shelter alive were greatly limited.
With Adele running out of time at the shelter, Mayberry 4 Paws, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, wanted to save her. On August 27th they reached out to RADAR for help with the costs of her heartworm treatment. Mayberry 4 Paws would facilitate her heartworm treatment and find a rescue placement for her. We agreed to assist, and she was whisked away to the safety of temporary boarding. She received her heartworm treatment on September 17th. Adele then received the good new that Niagara Dog Rescue in Ontario, Canada would take her!
“Adele has been in a kennel environment with dogs of all sizes,” we were told. “She is quiet and low key. She gets along with all the dogs and does not bark. She is not very demanding and a terrific all-around dog.” Click here to view more photos of Adele.
RADAR paid all of Adele’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
