Lady’s name is perfect for her ladylike personality! This beautiful two-year-old Hound-Pointer mix arrived at the Duplin County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on October 22nd with three eight-week-old puppies and six six-month-old puppies in tow. Not much was known about where she came from or how she got there, but one thing was for sure: she needed help. Lady tested positive for heartworms, and they had become so advanced that she was having serious bloat complications.
On October 24th, Heidi McLaughlin with Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Lady. The rescue was ready to step up and pull her from the shelter, but needed help for her heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to assist. Lady was spayed on November 7th, and as part of her heartworm treatment, she had an x-ray on October 30th and started her doxycycline on November 7th.
Lady loves being with people and she loves getting tummy rubs. She is all smiles! Heidi also told us this about Lady: “Her foster mom says she is a well-mannered lady. As soon as the bag of treats comes out, she runs to her kennel for her reward. She loves to play with her four-legged foster sibling and is patiently waiting for a forever family to give her a chance!” Click here to view more photos of Lady.
RADAR paid $250 towards Lady’s heartworm treatment and spay costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Lady have been raised! Thank you!
