Anneleise has been through very hard times. On July 12th, this three-year-old Hound mix ended up at the Lee County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray. It was clear that she had a tough life. She couldn’t put any pressure on one of her front legs, which turned out to be broken and would later be amputated. But that wasn’t all – Anneleise was also heartworm positive, which lowered her chances of being rescued or adopted even more.
On July 26th, Brandi Sowell, RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, asked us for help with Anneleise (at the shelter, she was known as Camilla). “The shelter does not have a budget for anything medical,” Brandi said, “so I had to fundraise for her x-rays.” Operation Underdog in West Virginia would take Anneleise and raise the funds for her leg amputation, but needed help with the heartworm costs. We committed to assist. Anneleise made her way to the rescue. She had her amputation and spaying done on August 8th, and received her heartworm treatment on August 24th.
“Anneleise has a sweet, loving, velcro-dog personality,” the rescue told us. “She is doing great with house and crate training. She is good with the other dogs and doesn’t even seem to notice the cats. She loves being with her person and will hop right into a chair beside you (sometimes needing a bit of help.) She has a great personality, a mix of timid with fun. She is learning the joys of being part of a home!” To see more photos of Anneleise, click here.
RADAR paid all $299 of the heartworm treatment costs for Anneleise.
