The name Marla might mean “star of the sea,” but we think this Marla is a star all around! This sweet three and a half-year-old Hound mix ended up at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on September 27th after she was found at a popular dumping ground for dogs in the area. Her owner called the shelter looking for her, but when the reclaim fee was mentioned, they hung up the phone and never called back. It wasn’t all bad though, because it turned out that Marla was heartworm positive, and her previous owner probably wouldn’t have gotten her the treatment she needed.

On October 4th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, sought RADAR’s help with Marla’s heartworm treatment to better enable her to get rescued or adopted. We agreed to assist, and she had her heartworm treatment on October 18th.

“Marla is such a sweet, calm girl!” Kristin said. “She is great with people and other dogs. She is in the care of one of our best fosters, while waiting to find her forever home.” To see more photos of Marla, click here.

RADAR paid all of Marla’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $333.
