They call me Hope, probably because that’s what I do best in any situation: have hope! I’m an American English Coonhound who ended up at the Pocahontas County Animal Control shelter in West Virginia on July 22nd after I was found as a stray. Approximately seven years old, I’ve got a few years behind me and, unfortunately, I’ve collected a few health problems along the way, including some questionable mammary tumors that needed to be taken care of. But I never worried, because I knew (or at least had hope!) that things would work themselves out somehow.
My hope for help came from De Anna Lynn, a wonderful person who runs Advocates for Shelter Animals of Pocahontas County, WV (ASAP) to help dogs like me. Actually, it was De Anna’s daughter, Diondra, who found me near where they live. So that I could have the best chance of getting a rescue to take me, De Anna knew I needed to get spayed and have those mammary tumors removed. She asked a group called RADAR if they could cover the costs, and they agreed to do just that! I was spayed and had the mammary tumors removed on September 11th. I feel so much better now. And the good news is that the tumors were just fatty masses.
I’m very loving, and I know to paw on you when I want something (which is either ear rubs or a treat). De Anna says that I’m a a lovely, calm, quiet and affectionate girl who is great with other dogs and a real sweetheart! Click here to view more photos of me!
RADAR paid all of Hope’s spaying and mammary mass removal surgery costs, which totaled $328.
UPDATE! All funds for Hope have been raised! Thank you!
