Morgana sure had more than her share of problems. She was found running as a stray down a busy two-lane road. The two-year-old petite Hound-Retriever mix was taken to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee on June 29th. Morgana was limping from an old traumatic injury to her right rear knee. Her hips were a little wonky too. She had kennel cough. She also had a rear end full of buckshot. And, of course, she was heartworm positive.
On July 13th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, requested RADAR’s help for Morgana. “She recovered from her kennel cough after being quarantined,” Kristin told us. “Her leg does not seem to be painful (although she doesn’t use it much.) Based on the opinion of three veterinarians, we are going to leave the leg alone. The buckshot won’t cause a problem unless she has an MRI!” All that Morgana still needed to be rescued or adopted was heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist, and on July 29th Morgana had her heartworm treatment.
“Morgana is very friendly and energetic,” Kristin shared with us. “She’s affectionate and great with other dogs. She’s a sweet little girl who will need a special adopter.” Meanwhile, Morgana is in a foster home. Click here to view more photos of Morgana.
RADAR paid all of Morgana’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $260.
