The name Reba means “fourth born.” While we don’t know if she was the fourth born in her litter, we do know that she gave birth to a “fourth born” pup of her own when she had her five pups. Approximately three years old and a Hound mix, Reba and her family arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on July 17th. As adorable as Reba’s pups were, there were some complications for her: she had heartworms and mange.
On July 21st, Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina, asked for our help with Reba. If we could assist with her heartwom treatment costs, the rescue would pull the entire family. We agreed and the gang was safe! Reba was treated for her mange. On August 14th, Reba was spayed (no more “fourth borns” for her!) and began her heartworm treatment.
“Reba is a great girl and has a very easy going personality,” the rescue told us. “She does well with other dogs and kids and is a favorite at the rescue. She loves walks and being with people.” Click here to view more photos of Reba.
RADAR paid $250 towards Reba’s heartworm treatment costs.
