When animal control responded to a call about the poor conditions in which Carmen was living, her owners were given the choice of surrendering her or facing charges. Although it was clear that the three-year-old Hound had been used for repeated breeding, no puppies were found. Carmen was surrendered to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on March 15th. Sadly, she tested heartworm positive.
On April 21st, the Sampson County Animal Advocates in North Carolina requested RADAR’s help with Carmen’s heartworm treatment costs so that she would be better able to get a rescue placement. We agreed to help. She received her heartworm treatment on May 9th.
“There’s no looking back in the rearview mirror for Carmen,” we were told. “It’s full-speed ahead to her rescue so she can enjoy her new life, thanks to RADAR! Carmen has come such a long way since her shelter stay. Her health needs are now on the road to recovery; she’s gaining some weight back and her coat is starting to shine! Carmen has been a doll throughout the process; she has a real easygoing personality, is very calm, and really just so happy and pleasant with everyone and other dogs.” To see more photos of Carmen, click here.
RADAR paid all $305 of the heartworm treatment costs for Carmen.
