What’s the deal with Della? She’s a seven-year-old Beagle mix who ended up at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on December 1st as a stray. Poor Della didn’t have much of a chance making it out of a high-kill shelter such as this one, especially being a senior dog and testing positive for heartworms.
On December 6th, Tanya Wildman with RescueConnect Animal Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR in an effort to save Della. “She does not have a chance without our help,” Tanya said. “This is a high-kill shelter and we need to get her out now!” With assistance, Della could get her vetting and heartworm treatment, and then go to Tall Tails Beagle Rescue in Maine. We agreed to assist, and Della was safe! She was spayed and had a mass removed December 28th. She received her heartworm treatments on January 24th and 25th.
“Della is as good as gold and as sweet as they come,” Tanya shared with us. “She is a delightful little girl and happy all the time. She is good with dogs and people. She doesn’t do anything wrong!” To see more photos of Della, click here.
RADAR paid all $327 of the spay, mass removal and heartworm treatment costs for Della.
UPDATE! Della has been adopted… by her foster Mom! Della’s new name is Daisy!
