Hi, I’m Carla! I’m one and a half years old, and I’m a Shepherd mix. Some of my favorite things include making friends, trying to use up my seemingly endless supply of energy, and having fun! The problem is, I haven’t had much time to do the things that I love most. A lot of my life has been spent outside, and eventually I ended up at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on July 18th. I wasn’t too upset about that, since I knew that it could be my chance to start a new life! But since I hadn’t really been properly cared for in the past, I was heartworm positive, which meant finding a new home for me would be that much harder.
Luckily for me, there were folks working to help me. The plan was to get my heartworm treatment done so that I could be more readily rescued or adopted, but that was going to be costly. Fear not, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator knew just what to do: ask RADAR for funding. And that’s just what she did on July 21st. They agreed to help, and on July 24th I received heartworm treatment.
My great personality and good looks should ensure that I find a family who loves me. And I got much closer to that goal when Volunteers For Animals in New York offered to take me! My pick transport took place on August 10th. Click here to view more photos of me.
RADAR paid all of Carla’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $356.
UPDATE! All funds for Carla have been raised! Thank you!
