Candy, a nine-year old Beagle, is a sugary-sweet girl! She arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a scared stray on December 31st. Inside this petite girl were some not-so-sweet things. Not only did she have a BB shotgun pellet in her sternum, but she was also heartworm positive.
On January 15th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) and its Heart Beat Goes On program in South Carolina recruited Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut to take Candy, but her heartworm treatment would need to be done first. Mary Lou contacted RADAR for our assistance, and we agreed to fund her treatment, which took place on January 16th and February 18th.
“Candy has wonderful big floppy ears!” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with SAA, told us. “We absolutely love this dog! She is the snuggliest couch potato and Candy sings when she’s happy. She is fantastic with other dogs and loves everyone!“ To see more photos of Candy, click here.
RADAR paid all $354 of the heartworm treatment costs for Candy.
UPDATE! All funds for Candy have been raised! Thank you!
