You don’t need to be Dick Tracy to know that we would help Kacy! This three-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix had the misfortune to be surrendered to the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center shelter in Augusta County, Virginia, not once, but twice. She was returned the second time on March 10th after her owners discovered that Kacy had heartworms. Kacy needed to get out of the shelter for good this time and get heartworm treatment.
On April 9th, Corena Huffman with the Highland County Humane Society in Virginia contacted us to see if we could assist with Kacy’s heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. Of course, we agreed. On April 15th, Tough Mutts Dog Rescue in Virginia committed to take Kacy! She received her heartworm treatment on May 18th and 19th.
The rescue had this to say about Kacy: “She loves people, other dogs and her toys. However, no cats please! She absolutely adores belly rubs. She is a little clumsy at times, especially when she doesn’t realize she’s getting ready to roll off of the couch!” Click here to see more photos of Kacy.
RADAR paid all of Kacy’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $140.
UPDATE! All funds for Kacy have been raised! Thank you!
