Little Orphan Annie? Well, maybe Medium Orphan Annie. But definitely Orphan Annie! Approximately four years old, this Bluetick Coonhound arrived at the Sampson County Animal Society shelter in North Carolina on November 12th. No one came for Annie, making her a true orphan. Even worse, her orphanage was a kill shelter. Testing heartworm positive only made matters worse for Annie.
As an incentive for a rescue to take Annie, on November 21st, RADAR provided an offer to assist with her heartworm treatment. With Annie’s available time at the shelter quickly slipping away, finally there was some good news. On December 5th, Juliet’s House Rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Annie!
On December 6th, Annie was spayed and had her initial vetting done. Annie got an early Christmas gift: she was retested for heartworm, and tested negative! Annie, who is great with children, dogs and even cats, is now looking forward to finding her forever home so that she can be Un-orphaned Annie! To view more photos of Annie, click here.
RADAR paid $150 towards the initial vetting and spaying costs for Annie.
