Buster Brown, formerly known as Leroy, needed help so he could kick his heartworms to the curb and find a new gang to adventure with. Buster Brown was abandoned by his owner to the Columbus County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on April 11th. He was battling not only heartworms but two nasty tick diseases: Lyme Disease and Ehrlichiosis. This two-year-old, 47-pound Border Collie mix had the cards stacked against him and needed a bit of luck to turn his game around.
On April 21st, Ollie’s Angels Animal Rescue in New York wanted to step up to rescue Buster Brown. Melissa Bielawski, director of Ollie’s Angels, contacted RADAR for assistance with his heartworm treatment, and we agreed to assist. This lucky pooch then went on to a loving foster home. Buster Brown finally had an ace in his hand!
Thanks to RADAR’s assistance, Buster Brown got his heartworm treatment on June 2nd. This pup is house and crate trained, and enjoys other dogs. Buster Brown can be shy at first, but quickly warms up and is ready for an adventure with his people. He is looking for a Mary Jane and Tige to complete his gang!

RADAR paid all of Buster Brown’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $220.
