In the words of the 1968 Tom Jones hit song, “My, my, my, Delilah!” A Hound mix and 18 months old, Delilah was an injured stray taken to the Stokes County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on October 13th. This very small shelter, which is operated by just one person, only accepts injured or dangerous animals and cruelty cases. Delilah had a prolapsed uterus and was heartworm positive. Animals have very little time at this shelter, so Delilah needed help fast.
That same day, the Stokes County Humane Society expressed interest in pulling Delilah, but needed help with her heartworm treatment costs. The folks at Mayberry 4 Paws in neighboring Surry County, who often collaborate with the Stokes County Humane Society, urgently reached out to RADAR. We immediately agreed to assist, securing Delilah’s rescue! She went to the vet the next day and was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. On October 17th, Delilah had surgery for a hernia, to address her prolapsed uterus and was spayed. She was able to get her heartworm treatment done on December 13th.
“Delilah is a very sweet girl and loves human contact,” her dedicated and devoted foster mom told us. “She gets along very well with my dogs, she’s learning about cats and completely ignores the bird. I have been amazed at how well she has adapted. She is full of energy, so she will require lots of time to exercise. Delilah absolutely LOVES to play with a ball and occasionally brings it back to me!” Click here to view more photos of Delilah.
RADAR paid all of Delilah’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $300.
UPDATE! All funds for Delilah have been raised! Thank you!
