There was a mad dash to save Ash! Three years old and a handsome Bluetick Coonhound mix, Ash arrived as a stray on April 6th at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. He was such a loving dog, but being heartworm positive presented a huge obstacle to securing a rescue. And time was not on Ash’s side; he had until 4 pm on April 13th to get a rescue commitment or be euthanized.

With only a few hours to spare on April 13th, Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina urgently asked for RADAR’s help with Ash. If we would assist with his heartworm treatment costs, they would pull Ash. We agreed at once, and Ash was safe! He received his heartworm treatment on May 11th.

The rescue provided us with this note from Ash: “I am loving life right now at my foster mom’s house with her two other pups and I enjoy playing with them all hours of the day! My big and droopy chocolate-brown eyes and supersoft ears that seem to stretch for miles are what makes me the cutest and hardest dog to say no to! I am pretty quirky with my talking back when I don’t get my way or an extra scoop of food but it’s the quirks that make me the most adoptable dog! I am the best front seat rider but occasionally I’ll lounge in the back with the other dogs. I want to make sure that no one ever forgets about me, so I remind them with my constant kisses and lap cuddles. I like to gaze longingly out the front windows and daydream about my forever home and watch the world pass by. My tail never stops wagging, and my tongue never stops kissing, and my heart never stops loving no matter what!” Click here to view more photos of Ash.

RADAR paid all of Ash’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $227.
