Buddy is a beautiful Boxer blend who had waited nine long months to get saved from the shelter. He is a two-year-old stray, and was admitted to the Allendale County Animal Shelter in South Carolina way back on June 13th. As the months passed, Buddy must have wondered if he’d ever get out of this small rural shelter. What he didn’t realize is that he had heartworms, making his rescue or adoption possibilities all the more problematic.
Fortunately for Buddy, in mid-March Mary Lou Seymour and the dedicated folks with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program decided the time had come to try and help him. Sure enough, they were able to interest Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut in taking Buddy, but first needed to find funding for his heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou turned to RADAR, and we agreed to assist.
On April 7th, Buddy had his heartworm treatment done. December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On, provided us with this information about Buddy: “He’s a happy-go-lucky boy who has had a hard life. He’s outgoing and friendly. Buddy loves people. He also walks well on a leash.” Click here to view more photos of Buddy.
RADAR paid all of Buddy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $303.
UPDATE! All funds for Buddy have been raised! Thank you!
