Heather didn’t know whether or not being abandoned and ending up in the Pender County Animal Shelter in North Carolina was a good or bad turn of events. This one-and-a-half-year-old Coonhound mix was very scared and unsocialized when she was picked up as a stray on March 1st. She hadn’t received good care in her life so far, as she tested positive for heartworms at a relatively young age. Heather waited, perhaps in vain, for a rescue to take her out of the small rural shelter.
RADAR received a message about Heather from Coastal Canine Rescue in North Carolina on March 26th, asking if we could help with Heather’s heartworm treatment costs. If so, the rescue would be able to take Heather. We committed to Heather, but her heartworm treatment was delayed due to COVID-19. As North Carolina opened up again, she was finally able to have her first heartworm treatment on June 11th.
Heather has a beautiful coat, with colors of black, tan and blue ticked. She is very sweet. Heather is in the process of learning what a life filled with love and care can be like. Be sure to view more photos in Heather’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of the costs for Heather’s first heartworm treatment, which totaled $290.
UPDATE! Heather has been adopted!
