From her many scars, it was clear that Chloe had already lived a difficult life. But now she was in need of a holiday miracle to save her life. On December 3rd, Chloe arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Two to three years old and Bulldog mix, Chloe was picked up as a stray along with her two puppies. The puppies were weaned and on the adoption floor by December 12th. They were almost instantly adopted. Meanwhile, because Chloe tested heartworm positive, she was not available for adoption. She was on death row and needed a rescue commitment to save her.
Starting on December 19th, Mary Lou Seymour with The Heart Beat Goes On program got the word out about Chloe, who was described as a very gentle and sweet girl. On December 21st, RADAR was asked to assist. Let Them Live Rescue in Kentucky was interested in Chloe. However, help was needed for her heartworm treatment. We agreed to help Chloe, and on December 22nd, Chloe was safe! She then went to a foster-to-adopt home in Michigan. She received her heartworm treatment on January 13th.
Her foster family had this to tell us: “Chloe is gentle, but a little timid. Clearly she’s suffered at the teeth of other dogs numerous times. If not, it is hard to imagine the attack that left this little angel more scarred than I’ve seen a dog. Her body is so hard and lumpy with deep scars. She’s suffered, and clearly her ears had been nearly ripped off. Just sad. Yet she’s as gentle as lamb. She’s great with little kids. This dog is amazing! Boy, did she deserve a miracle, and we’re so glad she got that.” Click here to view more photos of Chloe.
RADAR paid $250 towards Chloe’s heartworm treatment costs.
