Helping Dharma could only result in good karma! This 18-month-old Pit Bull mix arrived as a stray at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on September 6th. Dharma was found wandering around an apartment complex. Although some residents had been feeding her, she had no known owner, and was in a terrible state of neglect. Dharma’s skin was so infected, that she would bleed at the slightest touch. She was also very withdrawn and despondent.
On September 8th, right after finding out about Dharma’s dire situation, RADAR provided an assistance offer as an incentive for a rescue to pull her. On September 10th, Jenna Hammond’s Lee County Animal Advocacy in North Carolina agreed to take Dharma! Jenna, like many of us, was drawn to Dharma by the look in her eyes. According to Jenna, “I love her eyes, they really do say everything she’s feeling.”
Because of Dharma’s urgent condition, she went from the shelter directly to the vet for her initial vetting and the start of her multi-week skin treatment. Jenna provided us with this update: “Dharma looks wonderful, and is wonderful! More than the physical change has been the mental one for her. And, she’s becoming quite the goofball!” Click here to view more photos of Dharma.
RADAR paid all of Dharma’s initial vetting and skin treatment costs totaling $185.

UPDATE! Dharma has been adopted!
