Charlotte was no hunting starlet, and that probably led to her being homeless. Three-year-old Charlotte, a Hound mix, was found running along a road in an area where many Hounds are dumped because they fail to be useful as hunting dogs. She was taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on November 10th. It wasn’t clear how long Charlotte had been on her own, but it appeared that she had several litters of pups in her short life. She also tested heartworm positive.
While Kristin found a foster home for Charlotte, the great obstacle to finding a rescue or adopter was getting Charlotte treated for her heartworms. On December 30th, Kristin Baksa from the shelter requested RADAR’s assistance for Charlotte’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to assist. Charlotte received her heartworm treatment on January 6th.
“Charlotte is delightful!” Kristin told us. She is resting and getting healthy in her foster home. She’s gaining weight and has developed a beautiful shiny coat. She’s very calm and not much of a barker. (Maybe that’s why she wasn’t a good hunter?) Charlotte is one of the few Hounds who can live successfully in a townhouse! Her foster says she doesn’t disturb the neighbors during the day, and seems perfectly content living the good life inside!” Click here to view more photos of Charlotte.
RADAR paid $250 towards Charlotte’s heartworm treatment costs.
