Candace was nimble and Candace was quick, but Candace still felt the needle stick that showed her to be positive for heartworms. The Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina had more dogs than the old woman who lived in a shoe had children when this beautiful black Labrador Retriever, one to two years old, showed up as a stray on February 19th. Candace’s heartworm status meant that she could not be adopted to the public. Her only way out alive would be if a rescue pulled her.
Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program had something better than all the king’s horses and all the king’s men. On February 27th Maid Mary Lou started milking. By March 1st a rescue had shown interest in Candace IF there were funds to pay for the cost of her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou asked RADAR for help and we agreed to assist. On March 5th New England Lab Rescue in Maine agreed to pull Candace!
Candace went to Sandy Crest Kennel in Chesterfield, South Carolina, for her heartworm treatment and recuperation. She received her treatment on March 10th. Her caregivers say that she is very sweet and lovable. She walks well on a leash. She is a high-energy gal who loves to run and play. A home with a big yard and a kid to run with would be ideal! Candace would be over the moon with happiness to have a forever family. Click here to view more photos of Candace.
RADAR paid $300 towards Candace’s heartworm treatment costs.
