As you will soon learn, Zala is very fond of food! This three-year-old Redbone Coonhound was found running loose as a stray on September 19th and taken to the Blount County Animal Center in Tennessee. Not surprisingly, she was heartworm positive. Did we mention that she loves food?

On September 26th, RADAR’s liaison at the shelter, Kristin Baksa, requested our assistance for Zala. “She does not like being in the shelter, in part because of the small meal portions!” Kristin told us. “But she needs heartworm treatment, so she will have to be patient to find her forever home and larger meals!” We agreed to help. She had her treatment done on October 1st and 2nd.

“Zala is a happy, social girl,” Kristin said. “Among the things she likes: attention and affection; food; other dogs; food; long walks; food; comfy beds and more food! Among her dislikes: being in the shelter; being ignored; mosquitoes; and small dinner portions! Click here to view more photos of Zala.

RADAR paid all of Zala’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $294.
