Jordanna was found running loose outside of a hospital. Perhaps she realized that she had heartworms and was trying to get some medical help? Approximately seven years old and a German Shepherd, Jordanna was picked up by animal control on September 28th and taken to the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. No one came forward to claim Jordanna. Because she was so well-behaved and sweet, the shelter was going to put her in their adoption program, but could not since she was heartworm positive.
On October 3rd, Mayberry 4 Paws in North Carolina, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for the at-risk dogs at this shelter, decided that in order to save Jordanna, they would pull her with RADAR’s help. We agreed to assist with her heartworm treatment costs and Jordanna was off to her temporary foster home. She had her heartworm treatment done on October 13th.
“Sweet and humble, Jordanna is doing very well in her temporary foster home,” Mayberry 4 Paws told us: “Jordanna is now in great hands, and we’re happy to be of service to her. She gets along very well with other doggies and has a wonderful energy and smile!” Click here to view more photos of Jordanna.
RADAR paid all of Jordanna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $350.
UPDATE! Jordanna has been adopted! Her new name is Alice. She was adopted on Thanksgiving Day by RADAR’s co-founders, Ken & Rick!
UPDATE! All funds for Jordanna have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE We received sad news that Alice passed away on February 18, 2017. We were told that, “she had congestive heart failure, and it was time to let her go. We said goodbye to her at 11:45 this morning. She was part of our lives for just 85 days, but she will always have a special place in our hearts. Alice was so very sweet, loved her fur-sister Elsie and quickly became part of our family.” Rest in Peace, Alice.
