There seemed to be a hex on Tex. This two-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix was not only a stray, but also heartworm positive. He arrived at the Clarendon County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on September 3rd. At this overcrowded rural shelter Tex had only a very short time to get adopted or rescued. He was scheduled to be euthanized on September 10th.
On the morning of September 10th, Kathie Weinberg of Home Sweet Home Animal Rescue in New Jersey made an urgent request to RADAR. She would commit to pulling Tex if we would commit to assisting with his heartworm treatment costs. We did, she did, and Tex was safe! On September 14th he was neutered and started his heartworm treatment.
“When we got Tex (who was known as Buddy at the shelter), he was in rough shape,” Kathie told us. “He was very skinny and had hair missing on his hind quarters. He was initially very shy. His new foster tells us that he is a very sweet guy who loves sleeping on her bed. He is low key and likes her small puppy. He is good with her cats too!” To view more photos of Tex, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards Tex’s neutering and heartworm treatment costs.
