Sparkle is a three-year-old Plott Hound, the state dog of North Carolina. She didn’t feel like an honored breed when she was surrendered by her owner to the Pender County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on February 3rd. Sparkle hadn’t had good care by her owner, as she tested positive for heartworms. Would the sparkle in her eyes last with rescues hard pressed to pay the cost of her heartworm treatment?
Coastal Canine Rescue in North Carolina asked RADAR for help with Sparkle’s heartworm treatment costs on March 26th. We agreed to help Sparkle. Her treatment was delayed due to COVID-19 but she was finally able to have her first heartworm treatment on June 11th.
The Plott Hound was developed as a wild boar hunter, but Sparkle is happy to look forward to a loving, inside home with no hunting duties except sniffing out good food in her dog food bowl! Be sure to view more photos in Sparkle’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of the costs for Sparkle’s first heartworm treatment, which totaled $485.
UPDATE! All funds for Sparkle have been raised! Thank you!
While RADAR is no longer asking for donations for our nonprofit, we ask that you check out some of our rescue partners and make a donation to one or more of them.
