Not a jelly bean or a green bean, but it was Bean the Bully Breed mix who found himself at the Bamberg City shelter in Bamberg County, South Carolina on April 16th. This two- to three-year-old stray immediately caught the eye of Amy, a volunteer with the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in the same county, with Bean’s jump of joy straight into the air when he was let out of his kennel. He did not jump on Amy at all and his happy personality won her heart. Amy goes to the city shelter regularly to see if there are any dogs MAMAS might be able to help. Bean was an obvious candidate, and was soon off to the MAMAS shelter! He had the loving personality so common to his breed, but also had heartworms.
With Bean safely at the MAMAS shelter, Ruthie Rish, the MAMAS rescue coordinator, started looking for a rescue to take him. When Laura’s Hope Rescue in Pennsylvania heard about Bean, they wanted to take him, but his heartworms would need to be treated first. Ruthie contacted RADAR for help on April 29th and was able to get Bean to the veterinarian for his heartworm treatment the very same day when we agreed to help!
“Bean is a darling, smallish Pittie mix boy,” Ruthie shared with us, “who will win hearts everywhere he goes. He is such a happy guy who gets along with everyone and is afraid of cats! Bean will brighten the day of whoever is lucky enough to have him in their life.” His rescue shared that “he loves nothing more than to cuddle and love people.” Be sure to view more photos in Bean’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Bean’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $210.
