Bolt was sorry he had bolted after some chickens since it resulted in him being turned in to the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina after he was caught chasing them. The shelter was full so he was transferred to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in nearby Bamberg County South Carolina on March 26th. This one-and-a-half-year-old Labrador Retriever mix “didn’t have a mean bone in his body” but sadly his body was inflicted with deadly heartworms.
Ruthie Rish with MAMAS soon contacted RADAR. Laura’s Hope Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Bolt… the only thing missing was funding to help treat his heartworms. We said we would help with the expensive injections, and on April 8th, Bolt completed his heartworm treatment regimen.
Bolt is a “sweet, sweet boy who gets along with everyone (except chickens)!” We were told he is awesome and handsome – well just look at his pictures! This golden-furred boy is ready for a chicken-free home. All he wants is to be friends, but he’s not pushy about it. He’s just appreciative of attention and you want to give it to him because he is so sweet. To see more photos of Bolt, click here.
RADAR paid all $330 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bolt.
UPDATE! All funds for Bolt have been raised! Thank you!
