Chase needed an about-face to get out of his bad place and into a safe space. A three-year-old Pit Bull mix, Chase was rescued from his neglectful owner by animal control on August 27th and taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. He had been living his life tied to a tree without adequate food and shelter. He was also heartworm positive, and already symptomatic. Yet despite living his life with no shelter, no attention and minimal food, Chase was one of the happiest dogs the shelter had ever seen.
Kristin Baksa at the shelter knew that Chase needed to get his heartworm treatment started ASAP for both his health and to find an adopter or rescue. Kristin asked for RADAR’s help on September 19th. We agreed to assist with his heartworm treatment costs. Chase’s first heartworm treatment took place on September 22nd. He was also able to find a foster home.
“This boy is exceptional!” Kristin told us. “He deserves a chance for a real family who will love and care for him. He is friendly with everyone, including other dogs. He’s just so darn happy, and maybe that’s because he’s in a place where he is fed, has a bed, gets to go for walks, and isn’t tied to a tree 24 hours a day!” To view more photos of Chase, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards Chase’s heartworm treatment costs.
