Chewy had things go a bit screwy for a while, but he’s on a better path now. This four-year-old American Bulldog showed up at the North Augusta Animal Control facility in Aiken County in South Carolina as a stray on September 5th. His owners were tracked down using his microchip, but sadly they could no longer care for him. Chewy had more than one problem standing in the way of his future adoption or rescue: he had an atrophied testicle with suspected cancer and he was heartworm positive.
Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) and its HeartBeat Goes On program contacted RADAR on September 27th. Could we assist with Chewy’s heartworm treatment costs? If so SAA could take him. We agreed to help. After testing, happily, Chewy was cancer-free and he had his heartworm treatment on September 30th.
“Chewy is a super nice and big happy guy,” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with SAA, told us. He has an adorable smiling face, all the more appropriate now that he is on his way to a healthy future. To see more photos of Chewy, click here.
RADAR paid $350 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Chewy.
UPDATE! Chewy has been adopted!
