Nate and his brother Bucky were almost indirect casualties of Hurricane Irma. The shelter they were at in Georgia became full from an influx of dogs because of Hurricane Irma. The shelter didn’t have many options for these two dogs, so they were going to be euthanized. Fortunately, the kind folks at the Blount County Animal Shelter in Tennessee agreed to take the two dogs. They arrived in Tennessee on October 31st. However, Nate, a two-year-old Catahoula Cur mix, tested positive for heartworms.
On November 7th, RADAR’s liaison at the shelter, Kristen Baksa, asked us for help with the heartworm treatment costs for Nate. This would better enable him to get adopted or rescued. Thanks to the dedicated support of our donors for previous dogs, we were able to agree to help. Nate had his heartworm treatment on November 14th.
“While with us, Nate has learned what it’s like to have a bed, two meals a day, daily walks and attention from our volunteers,” Kristin told us. Thanks to RADAR’s help with his heartworm treatment, he can now find his forever home.” To see more photos of Nate, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs of Nate.
UPDATE! Nate has been adopted! His adopters, Eric & Patti Stutts, shared this with us: “He is such an amazing boy, we are so happy to have him in our life. Thank you all for all you do.”
UPDATE! All funds for Nate have been raised! Thank you!
