Hershey is one wonderful dog bar none! On May 19th Hershey, a one-year-old Hound mix, was surrendered by her owner to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. The person who surrendered Hershey had found her as a stray and kept her for several months until the landlord said Hershey had to go. But maybe that ultimately was a good thing since the shelter tested Hershey for heartworms, and she tested positive. Without the owner testing her and getting the treatment she needed, Hershey’s life would have been compromised.

On July 4th, Kristin Baksa from the shelter contacted RADAR requesting help with Hershey’s heartworm treatment costs so that Hershey could get adopted or rescued. We agreed to assist much to Kristin’s delight! A temporary foster home was found so that Hershey could better recover from her heartworm treatment, which took place on July 15th.

Kristin shared this with us about Hershey: “She has a wonderful temperament. She gets along well with dogs and cats. She is as sweet as sugar! She loves humans. Hershey seems to be able to adapt to any situation. If she were a human, I’d call her mature for her age and very level-headed!” To view more photos of Hershey, click here.

RADAR paid $250 towards Hershey’s heartworm treatment costs.

UPDATE! Hershey has been adopted! “Hershey is in a wonderful home with her new Basset Hound brother,” Kristin said. “The couple that adopted her made many trips to the shelter looking for the right dog for their Basset Hound. It was love at first sight when they found Hershey!”

UPDATE! All funds for Hershey have been raised! Thank you!
