Bonnie certainly is a bonny gal in her dark brown fur coat with caramel highlights. A three- to four-year-old Chow Chow mix, she was picked up as a stray by law enforcement and arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County, South Carolina, on September 24th. With her were her two older puppies Lacey and Sydney. They went onto rescue but for Bonnie, the trip to rescue would be more complicated. She tested heartworm positive and the cost of treating these made her chances of adoption or rescue problematic.
On October 15th, Ruthie Rish with MAMAS reached out to RADAR. Would we be able to assist and fund Bonnie’s heartworm treatment so that she would be more rescue ready? We committed to cover Bonnie’s heartworm treatment cost. She had her back-to-back heartworm treatment injections on October 28th and 29th.
Bonnie is described as “friendly and sweet.” MAMAS feels she has every chance for a new, great life ahead of her now that her heartworms have been treated. To see more photos of Bonnie, click here.
RADAR paid all $180 of the heartworm treatment costs for Bonnie.
UPDATE! Bonnie has been adopted! Her forever mom shared this, “Bonnie is amazing and we love her to pieces… still is little timid but she is very loving!”
UPDATE! All funds for Bonnie have been raised! Thank you!
