Sassy is one classy gal! Somewhere between 11 and 12 years old, this senior Coonhound arrived at the Surry County Animal Control shelter on November 29th as an owner surrender. Her owner claimed that Sassy had been running around the neighborhood and barking, and he was afraid that the neighbors would be upset. However, folks at the shelter said Sassy was very quiet while she was there. Unfortunately for Sassy, it seemed as though her owner decided she was no longer valuable because she’d grown too old to hunt or breed. Sassy was dealing with skin problems, and it was clear that she had multiple litters in the past. To top it all off, she was heartworm positive.
Knowing that a senior dog like Sassy didn’t deserve to spend her days in a shelter, Mayberry 4 Paws, an organization that helps facilitate and find rescues for at-risk dogs at the Surry County shelter, reached out to RADAR. If we could help, Mayberry 4 Paws would pull Sassy and take her into their care. We agreed to assist with the cost of her heartworm treatment and other vetting costs, and she got her vetting done on December 13th and her heartworm treatment on December 21st.
Sassy’s foster said she is the best dog, and that she is laid-back, calm, and likes to move in the slow lane. She’s quiet and humble, and sweet to everyone she meets — dogs, children, cats, and people. Sassy chooses to spend her time lounging around and enjoying the comfort of a warm and cozy spot.

RADAR paid all $490 of the vetting and heartworm treatment costs for Sassy.
