Chevelle arrived at the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee with two unwanted passengers: demodex mange (caused by mites) and heartworms. A delightful one-and-a-half-year-old Bully Breed mix, she came in as a stray on March 13th. The shelter took care of her mange, but she still faced the issue of heartworms. Chevelle hoped to be driven out of the shelter by a caring adopter, but would need some extra assistance with the cost of treating her heartworms.
Stephanie Garrett, RADAR’s liaison with the Blount County Animal Center shelter, contacted RADAR on April 23rd. She asked if RADAR could provide financial help for Chevelle’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help, and Chevelle had back-to-back heartworm treatments on May 5th and 6th.
“Chevelle is a beautiful, attentive dog,” Stephanie reported. “She’s not a big dog at all, just medium-sized, so there will still be room for you on the couch. Her eyes are so soulful! She’s still young and she’s still got lots of puppy personality. She likes to cuddle and has her own blanket at her foster parents house.” Be sure to view more photos in Chevelle’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $270 of the heartworm treatment costs for Chevelle.
