Cambry arrived along with her seven two-week-old puppies at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on March 5th. An unclaimed stray, this three- to four-year-old shy and sweet Hound-Bully Breed mix mom had a skin infection, was underweight and tested heartworm positive. She would need some financial help to treat her heartworms so that a rescue could afford to rescue her from the shelter.
On March 8th, Purple Paws 2nd Chance Rescue in Virginia asked for RADAR’s help with the cost of Cambry’s heartworm treatment. We committed to help pay for her heartworm treatment. Cambry had to finish weaning her puppies before she could have her treatment. She then had her skin and some other infections to overcome, and also put on some needed weight before she was healthy enough for the strenuous heartworm treatment regimen. She completed her treatment on June 29th.
Cambry is looking great now, according to Purple Paws 2nd Chance Rescue. Her coat has come back in. She is learning to trust, but loves attention once she feels safe. Her puppies have all been adopted to loving homes. Cambry has put motherhood behind her and is now playing and learning about the good life. She loves to play and fetch is her favorite game of all. Cambry is good with other dogs and good with older children. Be sure to view more photos in Cambry’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Cambry’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $300.
