It’s time to share Cher! This one-year-old Hound mix was brought to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on June 15th as a stray. Cher was shy, but friendly. Despite endless efforts to find a rescue for her, there were no takers, due in large part to Cher being heartworm positive.
When Lulu’s Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Cher on August 1st, a volunteer with the Sampson County Friends For Animals in North Carolina reached out to RADAR for help. If we would cover the costs of Cher’s heartworm treatment, the rescue would pull her. We agreed, and Cher was safe! She received her heartworm treatment on August 15th.
We were told this about Cher: “She is quiet and calm. She’s somewhat shy but very gentle and loving. With her expressions and curiosity, it seems she is experiencing much for the first time with environments and interactions. She will have no trouble adjusting, and will be a good family companion. She’s likely to become a loyal lap dog, and will want to be with her person all the time!” Click here to view more photos of Cher.
RADAR paid all of Cher’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $150.
UPDATE! Cher has been adopted!
