It was anything but peaches and cream for poor Peaches. On February 10th Peaches, a Hound mix, arrived as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. About seven years old, Peaches had a large lump on her left side and teeth in such bad condition that she could only eat soft food. But despite all of her woes, Peaches was as sweet as could be. What she desperately needed was a rescue commitment.

On February 12th, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, Gretchen Kozen, urgently asked for RADAR’s help with Peaches. We provided an offer to assist with her vetting costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. And almost immediately, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina committed to take Peaches!

Peaches had her vetting, spaying, mass removal surgery and dental treatment done on February 18th. The vet thought that the mass might have been caused by an old bullet wound and testing showed that it was not malignant. Several of her teeth were so bad that they had to be removed.

The rescue told us this about Peaches: “She is very timid. She doesn’t mind dogs or cats, but she enjoys some “me” time as well. Peaches likes to lounge on a bed and relax most of the day! She is afraid of going outside, but her foster is working on helping her overcome that.” Click here to view more photos of Peaches.

RADAR paid $250 towards the vetting, spaying, mass removal surgery and dental treatment costs for Peaches.
