Who needs a Lexus when you can have Alexis! A two-year-old, 50-pound Labrador Retriever-Weimaraner mix, Alexis was surrendered by her owner to the Allendale County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on February 8th. She was surrendered with two other RADAR-assisted dogs, Balto and Rudolph, because the owner could not afford to care for the dogs. All three dogs were heartworm positive, making them all the more at-risk at this small rural shelter.
On March 10th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program sought RADAR’s help for Alexis. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut was interested in taking Alexis, but funding was needed for her heartworm treatment. And just like we had with Balto and Rudolph, we agreed to assist.
On April 7th, Alexis received her heartworm treatment. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On, had this to tell us about Alexis: “She’s a sweet, gentle creature. She is shy but once she settles in, she is very calm and curls up in a ball. Like with Balto, she seemed sad about losing her family. With some attention, she should bloom.” To see more photos of Alexis, click here.
RADAR paid all $303 of the heartworm treatment costs for Alexis.
