Hi! It’s me, Cesara! While my story might seem like so many others, it’s very special to me. My world was turned upside-down on September 10th when I was taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. I had been wandering about without a home. I can’t tell you much about my previous life, and maybe that’s because I’ve tried to block it out. I heard a lot of talk at the shelter about getting rescued or adopted. That sounded great! But then I got some really bad news: I was heartworm positive. I couldn’t believe it, but the shelter’s rules didn’t allow me to be adopted. If a rescue wouldn’t take me, it would be the end of the line for me. But how could I find a rescue?
I found out later that I had a guardian angel working on my behalf. On September 22nd Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program went to work to find a rescue for me! With my time running out, on September 26th the Palmetto Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) said they would take me! But there was just one big problem: the cost of my heartworm treatment. Luckily, Mary Lou knew just what to do: ask the folks at RADAR for help. She did, they agreed, and my life was saved!
My heartworm treatment took place on October 2nd and 3rd. Thanks goodness that’s over! Oh, by the way, I’m a two-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix. I’m easygoing and love people. I’m really looking forward to finding a forever home. To see more photos of me, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards Cesara’s heartworm treatment costs.
