How could we not help to save a Saint? And this Saint was in grave danger. About two years old, this Bluetick Coonhound arrived as a stray at the Montgomery County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on October 29th. As just another hunting dog in a shelter with a 95% kill rate, Saint had little time and not much hope to get out alive. Oh, and Saint was also possibly pregnant, and probably heartworm positive.
With Saint scheduled to be euthanized on November 1st, Mereth Hoffman of Triangle Pets Alive in North Carolina urgently reached out to RADAR for financial assistance on October 31st. We agreed at once. On November 1st, instead of being euthanized, Saint left the shelter alive. Perhaps to paraphrase a hymn, we could say it was a case of “When the Saint Went Marching Out!”
Saint had her initial vetting and spaying done on November 13th. As it turned out, Saint had a false pregnancy, and was heartworm negative. By the way, Triangle Pets Alive decided to name her Saint because she was rescued on November 1st, All Saints’ Day! To see more photos of Saint, click here.
RADAR paid for all of Saint’s initial vetting and spaying costs totaling $157.
UPDATE! All funds for Saint have been raised! Thank you!
