Luna will love you to the moon and back! This three-year-old Boxer mix arrived at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on October 26th as an owner surrender. Like many before her, Luna was left at the shelter because her owner said that they couldn’t take care of her any longer. Despite the owner claiming that Luna preferred to be the only dog in the home, Luna was friendly to everyone at the shelter. Sadly, this sweet girl got more bad news when she tested positive for heartworms.
On November 30th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, sought RADAR’s help with Luna’s heartworm treatment to better enable her to get rescued or adopted. “Luna has a wise look about her,” Kristin told us. “If she could talk she would tell the other dogs: ‘Be patient; you’ll find your forever home.’ And she will find hers if we can complete her heartworm treatment.” We agreed to assist, and she had her heartworm treatment on December 6th.
“Luna has been a delight!” Kristin said. “She’s obedient and calm. She likes treats and being with people. She sits politely and would love to find a home and a best friend to hang out with. Luna’s been well-behaved with the other guests at the shelter.” Click here to view more photos of Luna.
RADAR paid all of Luna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $369.
