Alas, it’s Alice! This four-year-old Coonhound mix ended up as a stray on June 29th at the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. The shelter staff described Alice as being very sweet, friendly to people and other dogs, and good on a leash. Unfortunately, the shelter was full, she was just another Hound, and she tested heartworm positive.
Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for the at-risk dogs at this shelter, asked for RADAR’s help with Alice on June 30th. As an incentive for a rescue to pull Alice, we provided an offer to assist with her heartworm treatment costs. On July 19th, a foster was found for Alice. Through Mayberry 4 Paws, with RADAR’s help, she was able to get her heartworm treatment done on August 1st and 2nd.
“Alice is doing great and has actually been adopted by her foster dad, Britt!” Mayberry 4 Paws told us on September 6th. “Her foster dad is one of our best foster parents and one of our main long-distance transporters. He had recently lost one of his senior rescue dogs to cancer and Alice has filled that spot in his heart now. Her new Dad loves the way Alice grins at him – she has a smile that he has had a hard time capturing in photos. She is very much loved.” Click here to view more photos of Alice.
RADAR paid $250 towards Alice’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! Alice has been adopted by her foster dad!
