The race was on to prevent the loss of Boss. On October 5th, Boss was surrendered to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. A four-year-old Bully Breed mix, Boss was heartworm positive. It’s tough enough to save a Bully Breed in a shelter, but being heartworm positive can make it next to impossible. At this shelter, a rescue commitment would be required if Boss was going to get out alive.
On October 11th, Mary Lou Seymour with the The Heart Beat Goes On program began her tireless efforts to find a rescue for Boss. Striking out, Mary Lou turned to RADAR on October 24th. If we would help with his heartworm treatment costs, Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, would take Boss. Of course, we agreed!
Boss had his heartworm treatment done on October 27th. We were told this about Boss from December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On: “He is a friendly boy. While he is highly food motivated, he takes treats gently. He’s very well connected and highly trainable.” Click here to view more photos of Boss.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Boss.
