Ginny is a very sweet, docile beagle/pointer mix who we rescued in partnership with The Animal Rescue Foundation of Southeastern Pennsylvania in January. She was rescued from a shelter in rural Virginia, where she was most likely surrendered because she’s too sweet to be a good hunting dog.
The dogs at the shelter where Ginny was rescued from have little chance of surviving without outside rescues coming in to help. Most of the dogs at the shelter are the “duds,” the hounds who didn’t hunt well.
Once Ginny arrived here in PA, we took her to the vet and found out that she has heartworm and Lyme disease. She is only a year old. Heartworm infestation, if left untreated, is always fatal. ACDC won’t let that happen.
Although we caught the heartworm infestation in the early stages, her treatment will take several months and be quite costly. If you are able to make a contribution to Ginny’s care, please click here. In the meantime, we will keep you posted on her condition here on our blog. Once Ginny has been treated for the heartworm and Lyme disease and is given a clean bill of health, she will be available for adoption through ACDC.
