What Ace needed was an ace in the hole to secure a rescue commitment to save his life. And thanks to the efforts of several dedicated folks and groups, that’s just what happened! Ace is a three-year-old, 50-pound Pointer-Hound mix. He was found as a stray and arrived at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on March 14th. As is all too often the case, he was heartworm positive.
On March 23rd, Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program, began her efforts to help Ace. Two days later she was well on her way to success when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut expressed interest in taking Ace. The only thing needed was funding for his heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou quickly contacted RADAR and we agreed to help!
On April 7th, Ace received his heartworm treatment. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On, shared this with us about Ace: “He’s very sweet, very friendly and very loving. He walks well on a leash, and rides well in car. Ace is good with other dogs. He’s very wiggly!” Click here to view more photos of Ace.
RADAR paid all of Ace’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $303.
