Karma is in need of some good karma to break her pattern of returning to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. And it was not just once or twice, but three times! Karma, a three-year-old Pit Bull mix, was first adopted from the shelter in January of 2015. She was returned a few weeks later because the other dogs in the home were playing too roughly with her. She was adopted again a short time later, but returned this year on March 8th because her owner was moving and couldn’t take her along. Unlike Karma’s other two times at the shelter, this time she tested heartworm positive.

Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s help with Karma’s heartworm treatment costs on March 28th. “Karma tested heartworm negative when she was previously adopted,” Kristin told us, “and is now positive and needs to be treated.” We agreed to assist. Karma received her heartworm treatment on April 5th.

“Karma is gorgeous!” Kristin said. “She loves people and really loves to play with other big dogs! Karma loves to go for walks and sits for treats. She is a calm beauty who could use a new home with owners who will treasure her!” We’re counting on the third time being the charm for Karma! To view more photos of Karma, click here.

RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Karma.
