Blanca was looking for love in all the wrong places. She was a stray who was found trying to mate with someone’s dog. They called animal control, and Blanca was taken to the Surry County Animal Control shelter on April 17th. The two to four-year old Husky mix was friendly and quiet. She had the misfortune to test heartworm positive. With the shelter full, Blanca was in urgent need of of help.
On April 23rd, Mayberry 4 Paws, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Blanca. Mayberry 4 Paws would facilitate her heartworm treatment and find a rescue placement for her. We agreed to assist, and she received his treatment on May 31st. A few days later Blanca was transferred to the Carolina Canine Rescue in North Carolina.
“She is a very good dog,” we were told by her foster. “We call her Angel. She is very gentle and loves human attention. She can be reserved when meeting new people. She likes to roam and doesn’t like to be cooped up. She can’t get enough of being loved on. She gets along well with other dogs and enjoys doggy playtime.” To see more photos of Blanca, click here.
RADAR paid all $250 of the heartworm treatment costs for Blanca.
