Dancer will dance her way right into your heart! This two-year-old Hound mix was caught in a trap with two other scared Hounds, named Topper and Sonya, in a rural area known to be a dumping ground for Hounds. They were taken to the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on April 30th, but it turned out there was more than just the three of them, since Dancer was pregnant! Sadly, she was also heartworm positive.
Tamara Runions, a Blount County foster for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue in New York convinced the rescue to take all three dogs, including Dancer’s forthcoming pups. The only thing need was funding for her heartworm treatment. Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, asked RADAR to help, and we agreed to seal the deal! Topper and Sonya, who did not have heartworms, went from the shelter to the rescue.
Meanwhile, Tamara opened her home and heart to foster Dancer. On May 4th, Dancer gave birth to six healthy pups, and the new little family stayed with Tamara until they could go up north to the rescue. Dancer was finally able to get her heartworm treatment on July 19th, and go on to the rescue to find her forever home. Click here to view more photos of Dancer.
RADAR paid all of Dancer’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $300.
