Poor Patsy was described to us as being used as a “breeding machine.” Patsy, a two-year-old Hound mix, arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on February 11th. She was accompanied by another Hound, Homer. While Homer was thin, Patsy looked like she might be pregnant–again. Complicating matters, both dogs tested heartworm positive.
Gretchen Kozen, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, asked for our assistance on February 14th. Marlianne Midyette and her Love Mutts Rescue in North Carolina wanted to pull both Patsy and Homer if we could help with Patsy’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to assist and both dogs were safe. “I met them today and my heart cried,” Marli told us on February 18th. “They are beautiful, so sweet and quiet. What a tragedy had they been killed instead of saved.” Fortunately, Patsy was not pregnant and could be spayed.
“Patsy is laid-back and easygoing!” Marlianne shared with us. “She strolls easily on a leash and enjoys the sights and smells of nature. She prefers to sleep for the better part of the day on a comfy pillow or bed. She is such a sweet and loving dog. Her favorite thing to do is snuggle up with you while you pet her. She will gently paw at you if you stop petting! She’s a perfect little pup!” Click here to view more photos of Patsy.
RADAR paid all of Patsy’s heartworm treatment medication costs, which totaled $242.
