Fun fact: heterochromia iridis is the technical term for when one eye is a different color than the other, like Mo’s eyes! This six-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog-Hound mix ended up at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on October 7th when he was surrendered by his owner. The reason for surrendering Mo was because he had developed a taste for chickens. Poor Mo had spent all of his time outside with no veterinary care, and was heavily infested with ticks, hookworms and whipworms. Not surprisingly, Mo was also heartworm positive.
On October 25th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Mo. Covering the costs of his heartworm treatment would get him one step closer to being rescued or adopted. We agreed, and Mo got his treatment on November 13th!
We learned this from Kristin about Mo, “he was a little shy at first, but he grew to appreciate a warm bed, food, water and daily walks. And, check out those eyes!” Click here to view more photos of Mo.
RADAR paid all of Mo’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $356.
UPDATE! Mo was adopted on December 3rd!
UPDATE! All funds for Mo have been raised! Thank you!
