While Roman mythology’s Camilla is known as being a fierce hunter, this Camilla, a two-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound, is known for her loving personality and sweet disposition. She ended up at the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on May 28th as a stray. Folks at the shelter assumed that she was likely discarded after hunting. This gentle spirit was in desperate need of care, being covered in ticks, having Lyme disease, and testing positive for heartworms.
On June 8th, shelter advocate, Madi Joselyn, reached out to RADAR on behalf of the Burlington County Animal Alliance in New Jersey, to see if we would be able to assist with Camilla’s heartworm treatment. “They are already treating five heartworm positive dogs along with other dogs with medical issues,” Madi told us. “She has a foster home but we need to raise the money to help her.” We agreed and Camilla was safe! She received her heartworm treatment on July 24th.
“Camilla’s super sweet and loving,” her foster reported. “She loves to lean onto you. She also does the toothie smile when she is excited, which is hilarious! Also, she loves everyone:, people, cats and dogs of all sizes. She’s getting more outgoing and is a professional couch potato!” To see more photos of Camilla, click here.
RADAR paid all $244 of the heartworm treatment costs for Camilla.
UPDATE! All funds for Camilla have been raised! Thank you!
