The name Tori means triumphant, and this dog has certainly emerged triumphant through every hardship she’s faced. The two-year-old Lab mix was brought to the Lenoir County SPCA shelter in North Carolina way back on December 22nd after her owners chained her to a tree, and then abandoned her. Sadly, she has also tested positive for heartworms.
On May 23rd, Jennifer Watson with Ruby’s Misfits Animal Rescue in North Carolina, asked for our assistance in helping Tori get the care she deserved. We agreed to help with the costs for Tori’s heartworm treatment. She had her heartworm treatment on June 13th.
Tori was an absolute favorite around the shelter and according to a volunteer, Helen Civatte: “I have been spending lots of time with her, and she is as sweet as can be. She kind of reminds me of a bear cub!” To see more photos of Tori, click here.
RADAR paid all $228 of the heartworm treatment costs for Tori.
