Good golly, why won’t anyone help Wally? On February 18th, Wally was brought to the Lee County Animal Shelter in South Carolina by Animal Control. Wally had lived most of his life on a chain, and one day a passing dog attacked him. During the attack, Wally broke off his chain and Animal Control was called about the incident. Wally’s owner did not want to take him to the vet or buy a new chain, so Wally was surrendered to the Animal Control officer. This series of unfortunate events led Wally to a small rural shelter where he tested positive for heartworms. With a questionable past and a heart full of worms, finding a rescue or adopter for Wally would prove to be a challenge.
When Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Wally on April 1st, only one obstacle stood in the way: the cost of his heartworm treatment. Brandi Sowell, RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, knew just what to do: ask RADAR. We agreed to cover the cost and Wally had his rescue commitment! He received his heartworm treatment on April 10th.
“This boy was always smiling and dancing every time I saw him,” Brandi said. “Wally is incredibly sweet. He likes to dance around and loves to wrestle with friends. He’s always happy to meet a new friend!” Click here to view more photos of Wally.
RADAR paid all of Wally’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
UPDATE! Wally ended up going to our friends at To Love A Canine Rescue, as they had an open foster for him.
