‘Twas the day before Thanksgiving when Christina arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. A three-year-old Hound mix, she had little to be thankful for. She had cherry eye in both eyes and skin issues, as well as being underweight and fragile. She also needed to be spayed.
Marlianne Midyette with Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina wasted no time in seeking RADAR’s help for Christina’s vetting costs; Marlianne made her request the same day Christina was admitted to the shelter. We agreed to assist, and Christina finally had something to be thankful for: on Black Friday, shelter animal advocate Nancy Warner safely got her out of the shelter and off to the vet!
On December 5th, Christina had her cherry eye surgery done on both eyes and was spayed. Christina was transported from the vet to the rescue on December 8th, thanks to Susan and Amber! “Even with her health issues,” Marlianne told us, “she still wags her tail and just wants to love on anyone and everyone! She is so happy and loving!” To see more photos of Christina, click here.
RADAR paid $300 toward Christina’s spay and cherry eye surgery costs.
