Presenting Alexis: the dog, the problem and the solution.
The dog. Alexis is a two year-old Labrador Retriever mix who is described as a friendly and cheerful girl. This sweetie needs a whole lot of TLC. Every time she’s given a treat she has a disbelieving look right before she gobbles it down! To see more photos of Alexis, click here.
The problem. On April 30th, Alexis was surrendered by her owners to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Her owners told the shelter they had too many dogs. Unfortunately, Alexis tested heartworm positive, which greatly limited her chances of getting adopted or rescued.
The Solution. Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program started working her magic to find a rescue for Alexis. On May 23rd, when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut offered to take her, all that was needed was funding for her heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou requested RADAR’s assistance and we agreed! Alexis had her heartworm treatment done on May 25th and 26th.
RADAR paid all $341 of the heartworm treatment costs for Alexis.
UPDATE! All funds for Alexis have been raised! Thank you!
