With a name like Chaser, you might expect that this Labrador Retriever-Golden Retriever mix was chasing cars. Well, she didn’t chase cars, but reportedly chased children at a school bus stop! So animal control was called and on October 29th picked up her up as a stray and took her to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. Not only did ten-year-old Chaser have a severe infection in both ears, but she was also heartworm positive.
On November 26th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s help for Chaser’s heartworm treatment costs. “We want to help this poor baby,” Kristin told us. “We’ll take care of her and find her the home she deserves.” We agreed to assist. Chaser received her heartworm treatments on December 10th and 11th.
“It is very hard to believe that Chaser was chasing children,” Kristin said. “because she is very, very docile. She’s been a model guest at the shelter and is doing great in a foster home with small children. She’s house trained. She’s a calm but playful dog who would like to find a comfy home for her retirement years!” Click here to view more photos of Chaser.
RADAR paid all of Chaser’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $356.
