With Hurricane Florence approaching, there was no time to dally for saving Cali! One to two years old and a Chihuahua, Cali was surrendered by her owner to the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on September 10th, just days before Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas. In the effort to get animals out of the shelter before the hurricane, Cali had a big disadvantage: she tested positive for heartworms, which limited her ability to have a rescue pull her.
Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program was determined to save Cali. And she did just that with the help of two reliable partners: Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut and RADAR. The rescue would take her if there was funding for her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou immediately requested our assistance and we agreed to help. Cali had her heartworm treatment done on September 29th.
December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, told us this about Cali: “She’s a very nice Chihuahua. She doesn’t have that Napoleon-like personality! She’s quiet and inquisitive. She’s not snippy, just nice. This is a great little dog!” To see more photos of Cali, click here.
RADAR paid all $296 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cali.
