According to Snoopy’s previous owner, Snoopy was snooping among the chickens, and so he and his sister Ella were surrendered to the Blount County Animal Shelter in Tennessee on November 27th. Nine dogs had been surrendered to the shelter previously from the same owner, so it was probably just a matter of time before this two-year-old Hound mix arrived at the shelter. Ella tested heartworm negative, but poor Snoopy was heartworm positive. His heartworms would need to be treated first before the shelter could find him a home or rescue.
On December 10th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR. Could we help Snoopy with his heartworm treatment? We committed to covering the costs, and Snoopy had his back-to-back heartworm treatments on November 17th and 18th.
“Snoopy is big and friendly and playful,” Kristin said. “He would make a great family dog in a home with a fenced yard and some playmates (human or canine), but no chickens please! Now that his heartworm treatment is completed, he’s ready to go to a loving, caring home!” Be sure to view more photos in Snoopy’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Snoopy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $356.
UPDATE! The new year started with Snoopy getting a rescue placement with Volunteers for Animals in New York. He was transported to the rescue on January 3rd.
