Gracie sure needed some mercy. A three-year-old Beagle mix, Gracie was abandoned by her owner in a mobile home park. She was left tied outside for two weeks through 90-degree heat and severe storms. The owner of the mobile home park contacted the local SPCA, and Gracie was taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on September 1st. Despite the conditions she lived in, Gracie was friendly and gentle. Of course, she was heartworm positive.
On September 10th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s help with Gracie’s heartworm treatment costs. “This beautiful medium-sized girl deserves a forever home,” Kristin told us. “She’s all nose, all the time, so if you can’t find your missing socks, she’ll do a search for you!” We agreed to assist, and Gracie had her heartworm treatment done on September 27th.
“Gracie is a delightful girl,” Kristin shared with us. “She is all Hound with her nose to the ground! She’s friendly with people and gets along very well with other dogs. Gracie is very adaptable; nothing seems to bother her!” Click here to view more photos of Gracie.
RADAR paid $250 towards Gracie’s heartworm treatment costs.
