We had to help Charlie, otherwise we would have had to say, “Sorry, Charlie!” This five to six-year-old Plott Hound mix was surrendered to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on July 19th. He had been found as a stray and was taken in by a kind woman. Unfortunately, Charlie was too focused on her cats. The woman even tried a few sessions of obedience training, but Charlie flunked out. So off to the shelter he went, where he tested heartworm positive.

On August 11th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR for help with the cost of Charlie’s heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist. Charlie received his heartworm treatment on August 24th. “He is living with a foster family who loves Plott Hounds,” Kristin told us. “With kids and a yard and lots of inside time, he is thriving!”

“Charlie’s a big, friendly guy,” Kristin said. “He’s very smart but stubborn. He absolutely loves kids and people, and is good with other dogs. Charlie’s definitely a family dog who needs kids, a fenced yard and a nice comfy bed!” To see more photos of Charlie, click here.

RADAR paid all $293 of the heartworm treatment costs for Charlie.
