As a stray without a home, this dog can truly be called Little Orphan Annie! Three to four years old and a Hound-Labrador Retriever mix, Annie arrived at the Clarendon County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on April 21st. Annie had a great personality and lots of potential, but this high-kill rural shelter gives the dogs very little time and provides no vet care. Making matters all the worse for Annie was that she tested heartworm positive. She was scheduled to be euthanized on April 29th.
On April 28th Nancy Bartow with Where Hope Lives Rescue in North Carolina made an urgent appeal for RADAR’s help with Annie. The rescue would pull her if they could get help with her heartworm treatment costs. We agreed and Annie was safe. In early May, Annie was transferred to the Burlington County Animal Alliance in New Jersey. Annie received her heartworm treatments on July 19th and August 27th.
The rescue told us this about Annie: “She is a very friendly and perfectly-sized dog. Annie will come up to her foster mom and march in place, wagging her bionic tail, in hopes of getting a few pats and a chance to lick her foster mom’s face! This little spark plug loves to play in the yard, and although she is being fostered with cats, she’s probably too bubbly for cats who aren’t dog savvy. Annie is an ideal dog for first-time dog owners, families or anyone interested in a dog who just wants to be loved.” Click here to view more photos of Annie.
RADAR paid all of Annie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $131.
