Doran means “wanderer” in Gaelic. And wander is just what Doran did, but no wonder since he was tied outside unaltered on a rope in an unfenced yard. When he broke that rope once too often, his owner had enough and surrendered Doran to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on July 6th. Doran, approximately one year old and a Husky mix, tested heartworm positive. With the shelter overflowing, being heartworm positive and an owner surrender put his life at risk.
On July 7th, Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, asked for our help with Doran. To save Doran’s life, Mayberry 4 Paws would pull Doran if we would assist with his heartworm treatment costs. We agreed and Doran was safe! He was placed in a foster home and had his heartworm treatment on July 14th.
“A cuddly teddy bear of a boy!” is how the shelter staff described Doran. “He is a really great doggie, very calm and not very high energy,” his foster said. “He’s very loving toward all, human and dogs alike.” Click here to view more photos of Doran.
RADAR paid all of Doran’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $360.
