Yodel-ay-hee-hoo! Or, in this case, “the hills are alive with the hounds of music!” This six-month-old Redbone Coonhound mix, along with her sibling Yeller, arrived at the Surry County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on December 16th. Both dogs not only had Demodex mange, but also a deadline of noon on December 20th to get adopted or rescued, otherwise they would both be euthanized.
In response to an urgent request on December 19th for RADAR’s help, we immediately provided an offer of assistance as an incentive for a rescue to take both Yodel and Yeller. On December 20th, with only a few hours to spare, the national American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue agreed to take both Yodel and Yeller (they were known as Bonnie and Clyde in Surry County)!
On December 26th, Yodel received her initial vetting. Yodel and Yeller arrived at their foster home on December 28th. Their foster mom, Shelley McGhee, told us this about Yodel and Yeller: “They are good with the elderly. They adore my 79-year-old mother! So far, they do not like to be separated, but that may change. They love to give hugs and kisses. They crave attention and are definitely sweet!” To see more photos of Yodel, click here.
RADAR paid $85 for all of Yodel’s initial vetting costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Yodel have been raised! Thank you!
