Amanda is a Latin name meaning “deserving to be loved.” And that sure is the case with this Amanda. A two-year-old Bulldog mix, Amanda was picked up as a stray by animal control on December 13th and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Amanda had multiple lacerations when she arrived at the shelter. When her owner was located and contacted, he said he didn’t want Amanda. Testing heartworm positive, Amanda was not available for adoption; it would take a rescue commitment to save her life.
Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program knew that Amanda deserved to live and be loved. Starting on December 23rd, Mary Lou spread the word near and far about Amanda to try to find a rescue for her. With Amanda’s time rapidly running out, Mary Lou requested RADAR’s assistance on December 29th. If funding could be provided, Shelter Animals Advocates in South Carolina would take Amanda. We agreed to help, which paved the way for Amanda’s rescue.
Amanda’s heartworm treatment took place on January 13th and 14th. The vet determined that Amanda has very limited vision due to retina damage. When Amanda arrived at the shelter she was terrified, but in spite of that, she was so very sweet! Certainly you’ll agree that Amanda does indeed deserve to be loved.

RADAR paid $300 towards Amanda’s heartworm treatment costs.
