Sylvia was not just over a barrel, she was literally in a barrel. When two-year-old Sylvia arrived on August 10th as a stray at the Martin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina, a barrel became her new home. This small rural shelter has only outdoor runs and barrels for dog houses. Even though Sylvia had a collar, no one came looking for this young girl. And to make matters worse, she tested positive for heartworms.

On August 14th, Jackie Stanley with Rainbow Animal Rescue in North Carolina requested RADAR’s help with Sylvia. They would take her if we could provide assistance for her basic vetting and heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, and Sylvia was pulled on August 15th! She received her heartworm treatment on September 13th.

“She is very inquisitive and has the nose of a Hound,” is how Jackie described Sylvia. “She ended up in the shelter because a man who owns a fox said she kept showing up and digging into his fox pen. He wanted her gone, so he called animal control. She is a little on the shy side but loves attention. She is super sweet!” Click here to view more photos of Sylvia.

RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment and vetting costs for Sylvia.
