Knock, knock. Who’s there? Izzy! Izzy who? Izzy at the door and you’d better answer it! Luckily, the staff at Edgecombe County Animal Shelter in North Carolina answered the door on May 25th, and Izzy (formerly Patches) started down the road from being a stray to finding safety. Shelter staff noted that Izzy was submissive and a bit head shy indicative of a possible abusive past, but she was soaking up all the love they could give her. Just as things were starting to look up for Izzy, this medium-sized four-year-old Terrier mix found herself on the list of dogs to be euthanized. She had heartworms, making it expensive for a rescue to pull her.

Kelly Endebrock of 4 Paws Animal Rescue in Virginia was interested in pulling Izzy from the shelter and contacted RADAR on June 9th for assistance covering the costs of her heartworm treatment. We agreed to help and Izzy was able to head to her foster home on June 10th to unwind and continue discovering how nice people are. Izzy had her heartworm treatment on July 6th and is lucky to have a comfortable foster home for her recovery.

Izzy’s foster family had the following to share: “She really is a great dog! She loves everyone, doesn’t bark at all, and enjoys playing outside with us or hanging on the couch watching TV.”  Izzy enjoys the company of other dogs and will soon be ready to be adopted to her forever home. She is now knocking on the adoption door! To see more photos of Izzy, click here.

RADAR paid all $265 of the heartworm treatment costs for Izzy.
