Cortney spent just over half a year at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. When Cortney, a four-year-old German Shepherd, arrived at the shelter on February 6th, she had a terrible ear infection and was also in heat, which made it difficult for her to get along with other dogs at the time. On top of all that, Cortney was heartworm positive.
RADAR was contacted by the shelter on February 15th, asking if we could provide a grant for Cortney’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, but poor Cortney still didn’t have any interest. After months of waiting, there was finally some hope for Cortney when Maple Leaf Mutts rescue in Vermont took an interest in her. On August 1st, the rescue officially committed to pulling Cortney. She had her heartworm treatment on September 13th.
The folks at the rescue said this about Cortney: “She is a sweet girl who is, sadly, under-socialized. She seeks assurance from her person. She is very smart and playful.” They also added that, despite her difficulty getting along with other dogs initially due to her condition, Cortney has done a great job of making friends now that she is feeling better.

RADAR paid $250 towards Cortney’s heartworm treatment costs.
