Here we are, hounding you about another Hound! This time it’s Kimberly, a seven-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. Kimberly was found as a stray on March 21st and taken to the Chesterfield County Animal Services shelter in South Carolina. Finding a rescue for a Hound, let alone one who’s older and heartworm positive, would be challenging at this rural shelter.
Rebecca Davis, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s help for Kimberly on May 17th. “She’s just a sweet stray,” Rebecca told us. We agreed to assist with her heartworm treatment costs in order to encourage a rescue to take her. Two days later, Mostly Muttz Rescue in Pennsylvania committed to take Kimberly! She received her heartworm treatment on May 25 and 26th.
“Kimberly is a good girl,” her foster told us. “She is good with other dogs. Like most hounds, she wants to travel and explore. There’s been no howling or barking. Not sure I can honestly say that I have ever heard her bark except when she was running with two Lab pups!” Click here to view more photos of Kimberly.
RADAR paid all of Kimberly’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $269.
