If Lolly were just a pup, she’d be a Lolly-pup! But approximately six years old, Lolly was no longer a pup. When this Terrier mix arrived as a stray at the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on May 25th, the shelter staff assumed she would be reclaimed quickly. Dogs with her personality and distinctive wire-haired coat usually don’t stay long. But her owners never came. Probably for the best, since Lolly was heartworm positive.

On June 11th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, sought RADAR’s assistance with Lolly’s heartworm treatment costs. The Hawk Creek Animal Shelter in Minnesota offered to take her if her heartworm treatment could first be done. We agreed to help. Lolly had her heartworm treatment done on June 14th.

“She will make someone a great family pet,” Kristin told us about Lolly. “She’s a very happy dog! At the shelter, she had several potential adopters look at her and say they’ll be back to adopt her, but they never came back. So, the locals missed their opportunity!  Now, thanks to RADAR’s help, this girl can find a family that truly appreciates her.” Click here to view more photos of Lolly.

RADAR paid all of Lolly’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $228.
