“Get Yer Ya-Yas Out!” This Yaya was thrilled to burn off some of her extra energy when she was liberated from a home of severe neglect and brought to Blount County Animal Shelter in Tennessee on July 24th. A beautiful two-year-old Bully breed, Yaya was welcomed into the shelter with two other dogs that she was living with and has done nothing but drown shelter staff in sloppy kisses since she arrived. The two other dogs have been adopted, but unfortunately Yaya tested positive for heartworm making her less attractive to adopters and rescues.
Amazed and buoyed by Yaya’s resilience and continued love for all despite the neglect she experienced, Kristin Baska with the Blount County Animal Shelter was determined to get Yaya heartworm treatment so she would have a better chance of being adopted or rescued, and the opportunity to live her best life. Kristin contacted RADAR to request assistance with Yaya’s heartworm treatment on September 2nd. We agree to help and Yaya received her heartworm treatment on September 12th.
Yaya went home with a foster family on September 3rd and now has lots of love, toys, and cozy beds to enjoy in addition to the very basics of food and water that were not present at her previous home. Yaya is a super-affectionate girl and is ready to “get her ya-yas out” with a forever family that will welcome her sloppy kisses and bully snuggles! To see more photos of Yaya, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Yaya.
