Miss Buffy is all fluffy and not at all scruffy! A beautiful German Shepherd, two-year-old Buffy was found as a stray on October 11th and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. A classic dog like Buffy would usually have no problem finding a rescue or adopter. But Buffy tested positive for heartworms. This meant that she was not eligible for adoption at this shelter. Buffy would need a rescue commitment to spare her life.
If Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program needed to get a bit huffy to save Buffy, so be it! On October 12th, Mary Lou began her quest to find a rescue for Buffy. On October 23rd she hit pay dirt when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut expressed interest in taking Buffy. The only thing that stood in the way was funding for her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou asked RADAR if we could help, and we agreed!
Buffy had her heartworm treatment done on November 1st. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On program, describes Buffy this way: “She is alert and responsive. She’s a very nice girl. Buffy was fearful in the shelter, but she showed no signs of aggression. She is so friendly!” To see more photos of Buffy, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Buffy.
UPDATE! Buffy has been adopted!
