Just how sweet is Honey? Well, her foster mom calls her Honey Bun! This two-year-old Hound mix and her three young puppies were living a tough life roaming the streets as strays. Starved, cold and wet, Honey was desperately seeking shelter and food anywhere she could for herself and her family. Then on November 8th, she and her pups were picked up and taken to the Wyoming County Animal Shelter in West Virginia. Sadly, only one of her pups survived after all that they had been through.
While her surviving pup could easily get adopted or rescued, Honey’s prospects were much more dire because she tested heartworm positive. Within a few days, this very rural, high-kill shelter had Honey on their euthanasia list. Happy Hounds Homeward Bound Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking Honey and her remaining pup, but only if Honey’s heartworm treatment could be provided. Karen Mays, a shelter animal advocate, requested RADAR’s help on November 12th. We agreed to assist, and Honey and her pup were safe!
Honey had her heartworm treatment done on March 11th. We were told this about Honey: “She deserved this second chance at life. She deserved to be healthy. And she deserves to be happy and loved, and not to ever have to worry about being hungry again. We appreciate so much RADAR’s help with Honey, you have made all of this possible for her.” Click here to view more photos of Honey.
RADAR paid $250 towards Honey’s heartworm treatment costs.
