Jetta, a one-year-old Shepherd mix, might have thought someone had a vendetta against her, testing heartworm positive at such a young age. Her past is unknown but she arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 18th. It is unusual for a dog as young as Jetta to test heartworm positive, so we can surmise that she was an outdoor dog in the hot and humid climate in Duplin County.
Jetta was ‘code red’ due to her heartworm status and crowded shelter. Best Friend Pet Adoption in North Carolina stepped up for her but needed help with her heartworm treatment costs. RADAR was asked to help on September 22nd and we agreed to help cover those costs. Jetta completed her heartworm treatment on November 7th.
“Jetta is a sweet girl!!” her foster said. “She’s super friendly with everyone she has met so far, including kids. She is getting better on a leash. Jetta has a pretty laid-back personality and is hoping for a loving home where she can spend the rest of her life.” To see more photos of Jetta, click here.
RADAR paid all $209 of the heartworm treatment costs for Jetta.
UPDATE! All funds for Jetta have been raised! Thank you!
