When Cody’s owners moved to California, apparently they forget to take their dog. Cody, a three-year-old Bully Breed mix, was found by a neighbor, having been left abandoned for four days in the house after his owners moved. Cody was taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on February 10th. Of course, he was heartworm positive.

On March 19th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, asked RADAR for help with Cody. “There are way too many people in this region who have no regard for their animals,” Kristin told us. “But what would you expect from an owner that abandons his/her dog in a home! So, Cody is in a better place now and we will find him a good home once we get his heartworm treatment done.” We agreed to assist.

Cody received his heartworm treatments on April 5th and May 3rd. “He’s a forgiving boy,” Kristin shared with us. “He’s happy and energetic, and loves attention. Everyone knows when Cody is in the lobby! He has been friendly and well behaved at the shelter.” To see more photos of Cody, click here.

RADAR paid all $234 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cody.
