Jessie was rescued from the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on the very day she was scheduled to be euthanized. Here’s how it all came together for this three-year-old tricolor Hound mix. She arrived at the shelter on January 13th as a stray. Jessie was so sweet and kind that she was used to test other dogs who came into the shelter. Her good personality could not save her from her heartworm positive status, and she landed on the euthanasia list.
Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania sent an urgent request to RADAR on January 20th. Could we help with Jessie’s heartworm treatment costs so that she could be saved? We agreed to do so, and after a course of doxycycline, Jessie had back-to-back heartworm treatments on February 3rd and 4th.
Jessie is a mid-sized dog. The rescue says her personality is loving and submissive. Jessie is so loving and has such a sweet face. She is shy when she first meets people, but is growing more confident. She enjoys interacting with other dogs and people. Jessie is crate-trained. She gets along well with children and cats too. Jessie enjoys a good game of fetch and has a medium level of energy. Now that she is healthy, Jessie dreams of a loving family of her own. Be sure to view more photos in Jessie’s gallery.
RADAR paid $265 to cover half of the heartworm treatment costs for Jessie.
