Oh me! Oh My! It’s all about Meme (pronounced “me me”). On October 31st, this two to three-year-old Basenji-Chihuahua mix arrived at the Bryan County Animal Control shelter in Georgia. She was taken to the shelter by Bryan County Animal Control. Shelter staff were fairly certain that Meme was pregnant. Newborn puppies, let alone Meme, would not fare well in this shelter with winter approaching, since the concrete floors of the runs get very cold. But the weeks passed with no rescue interest.
On December 5th, Cheryl Garland with the Coastal Pet Rescue in Georgia received a call from the shelter asking if her rescue could take Meme. Cheryl immediately contacted RADAR to see if we could provide some assistance towards Meme’s vetting costs. We agreed at once, and Coastal Pet Rescue committed to take Meme!
There was good news and bad news when Meme had her initial vetting done on December 8th. The good news was that she was not pregnant. The bad news was that she was heartworm positive. Because she only tested low positive, Meme will be treated through the “slow kill” method of using monthly heartworm preventive.
Cheryl shared this with us about Meme: “She is being fostered with another little Chihuahua. Meme was a bit timid at first, but she warmed up quickly. She gets along great with other dogs. She is smart and sweet. Meme will make someone a great companion!” Click here to see more photos of Meme.
RADAR paid $150 towards Meme’s initial vetting costs.
