Everyone was at wit’s end to help Whitleigh. This three-year-old Beagle mix started the new year in dire need. Whitleigh was abandoned to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina. She had a serious issue with her right eye. After failing to respond to medications, the vet determined that Whitleigh’s eye needed to be removed.
On January 5th, Duplin animal advocate and RADAR liaison for the shelter, Gretchen Kozen, asked for our help for Whitleigh. We provided an offer to assist with her eye removal surgery as an incentive for a rescue to pull her. On January 8th, Adopt-An-Angel rescue in North Carolina agreed to take Whitleigh. Her eye removal surgery took place on January 26th.
The rescue shared this with us: “Whitleigh is an adorable Beagle who had previously suffered some trauma to her eye. Even with one eye, she is still beautiful. Whitleigh is friendly and social, and doesn’t appear to let this disability slow her down one bit. She does well with other animals and is housebroken. Whoever adopts this sweet girl will be really lucky!” Click here to view more photos of Whitleigh.
RADAR paid all of Whitleigh’s eye removal surgery costs, which totaled $200.
