Uno means one in Spanish. Sure enough, Uno is just one dog, but a great one! He arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on January 22nd. This handsome, blonde Hound mix was approximately seven years old and had a great personality. No one could go by his kennel without a distinctive Hound greeting, and he insisted on a brisk head rub. This otherwise very adoptable dog had a big barrier to his being adopted: Uno was heartworm positive.
On February 26th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) and its Heart Beat Goes On program in South Carolina reached out to RADAR, asking, “Could you help Uno out by covering his heartworm treatment?” We replied, “Yes!” Uno received his heartworm treatment on March 1st.
“Uno will do anything for a ball!” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with SAA, told us. “He enjoys playing fetch. He’s house-trained and a good easy-going boy, who walks well on a leash.” Perhaps Uno is the “one” for you? Click here to view more photos of Uno.
RADAR paid all of Uno’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $349.
