Hello, I’m Paisley! I’m a three- to four-year-old Chocolate Lab who ended up at the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee on June 12th. My owners surrendered me to the shelter, and I’m not really sure why. I was sad, but that didn’t stop me from trying to make new friends at the shelter and make the best of things! My new situation didn’t seem too bad until I got some really bad news. I was heartworm positive, and from what I’d heard, that makes it a lot more difficult to be rescued or adopted. At that point, I started to wonder if I was ever going to find my forever home.
Things started looking up, though. On June 15th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, let RADAR know that I was safe with a foster family, but I still needed help with the cost of my heartworm treatment. RADAR agreed to help, and I got my treatment on June 20th and 21st!
Folks at the shelter said that I am an energetic, friendly girl. I like a bit of structure, but really all I’ve ever wanted is a family that would love me as I loved them. The cherry on top of that would be a pool, pond, or lake that I could enjoy with my family and friends! Click here to see more photos of me!
RADAR paid all $531 of the heartworm treatment costs for Paisley.
