Walker’s name is right there in the middle of his breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound! Four-year-old Walker was surrendered to the Harnett County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 24th. He was underweight and, even worse, heartworm positive. Hound dogs are among the most at-risk dogs in shelters, and being heartworm positive only made it all the worse for Walker.
On August 27th RADAR’s liaison for the Harnett County Animal Shelter, Chris Leone, requested our help for Walker. In an effort to encourage a rescue to pull Walker, we provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment costs. On September 6th, Adopt Me Animal Rescue in Wisconsin agreed to take Walker! His heartworm treatment took place on October 21st.
“Walker is a ham!” the rescue told us. “He’s a wonderful sweet dog. He gets along with all dogs. He’s a joy to have according to his foster.” To view more photos of Walker, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Walker.
