It’s the ashen Asher! This one to two-year-old Bully Breed mix was found as a stray on October 14th and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. It’s tough enough for a Bully Breed to find a rescue or adopter, but Asher had the added disadvantage of having heartworms. At this shelter that meant that adoption was not even an option. It would take a rescue commitment to save Asher.
Mary Lou Seymour with The Heart Beat Goes On program was determined to save Asher. She began networking him to rescues on October 19th. But the weeks went by with no takers. On November 14th, Mary Lou sent out another urgent plea. With still no responses, Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, knew they would have to pull Asher to save him. But RADAR’s help would be needed for his heartworm treatment costs. Of course, we agreed.
On November 28th and 29th, Asher received his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On, December Clark, had this to tell us about Asher: “He is a awesome boy! He is gentle and walks wonderfully on a leash, with no pulling. He’s somewhat reserved with some people. Our transporter raved about how sweet Asher’s demeanor is. It is clear he had a home at some point. He even knows basic commands.” To see more photos of Asher, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Asher.
