We wouldn’t be lyin’ if we told you that one of the meanings of the name Ari is lion! Two years old and a Coonhound mix, Ari arrived as a stray on March 27th at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. It was tough enough to find an adopter or rescue for another Hound dog, but when Ari tested heartworm positive, all bets were off.
But Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program were not about to give up on Ari. After reaching out to rescues, they found one willing to take Ari. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut would take her If Ari’s heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Mary Lou requested RADAR’s help with Ari on April 6th, and we agreed to help!
Ari had her heartworm treatment done on April 17th. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On, told us this about Ari: “She is a sweet-natured girl. She loves to climb, which may be how she ended up in the shelter! She’s a gentle and lovely lady.” To see more photos of Ari, click here.
RADAR paid all $375 of the heartworm treatment costs for Ari.
