Cricket seemed to have gotten into the thicket of things when this two-year-old Beagle mix arrived at Surry County Animal Control in North Carolina on August 29th. Not only was she an owner surrender right before the upcoming Labor Day holiday, meaning a crowded shelter, but Cricket had not been given her heartworm preventive. A positive heartworm test, an owner surrender, and a crowded rural shelter meant things weren’t looking good for poor Cricket.
RescueConnect in North Carolina contacted RADAR on September 9th. Cricket was past her scheduled euthanasia date and the rescue urgently wanted to save her, but needed our assistance to pay for Cricket’s heartworm treatment. We committed to helping her and Cricket had her back-to-back heartworm treatment injections on October 24th and 25th.
Cricket has settled in nicely in her foster home. “She loves to sit on the couch with her foster and put her head in her lap,” we were told. “When she gets excited she jumps and catches air! She loves to play with her foster brother Raleigh. Cricket is a very sweet girl and will fit in wherever she goes.” To see more photos of Cricket, click here.
RADAR paid all $261 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cricket.
