The name Della reminds us of that novelty song of the states, “What did Della wear? She wore a bran’ New Jersey!” This two-year-old Bully Breed mix arrived as a stray at the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on March 28th. The woman who brought her to the shelter had seen her running for about a month, but didn’t have any luck finding her owner. Despite her young age, she tested heartworm positive.

On April 9th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, sought RADAR’s assistance with Della’s heartworm treatment costs. “Della’s affectionate personality has made her a volunteer favorite,” Kristin said. To better enable Della to get adopted or rescued, we agreed to help. She had her heartworm treatment done on April 25th.

“This girl is energetic,” Kristin told us about Della, “but puts on the brakes for kisses and hugs! She has a million friends, both human and canine. She absolutely loves to be with people and will make a wonderful family pet. At the shelter she is happy outside (as long as it isn’t raining or cold) but sits patiently in her kennel as well.” To see more photos of Della, click here.

RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Della.

UPDATE! Della has been adopted!
