As far as we know, this Pippa has no connection to the British royal family. Pippa, a four-year-old Hound mix, was one of 18 dogs confiscated in a cruelty case and taken to the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina April 19th. Over time, 16 of the dogs were able to go to rescues. Only Pippa and Bart, a lab mix. remained, and only Pippa was heartworm positive. Both dogs were in danger of being euthanized.
On May 25th, Ruth Turner with Coastal Canine Rescue in North Carolina urgently sought RADAR’s assistance for Pippa. If we could help with her heartworm treatment costs, the rescue would pull both Pippa and Bart that day. We agreed and both dogs were safe! After a stint in boarding, Pippa went to Ruth’s home in early July. After getting spayed, she began her heartworm treatment on September 10th.
“OMG, Pippa is a gentle sweetheart!” Ruth said. “She has really started to come out of her shell and she’s a really funny, silly girl; not with everyone, but with me. I’m sure she’ll come around in the next couple of months. She a very sweet baby girl!” We also learned that Pippa is good with kids and dogs, and is also house trained.

RADAR paid $250 towards Pippa’s heartworm treatment costs.
