Money you donate for this dog could be considered Cookie dough! Estimated to be two years old, this Pit Bull mix arrived at the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina on March 17th. She was surrendered by her owners. It was clear that Cookie had already produced one or more batches of puppies. And, her owners clearly did not use heartworm preventive: she tested heartworm positive. The combination of being a Pit Bull mix and heartworm positive did not bode well for Cookie.
With Cookie becoming more urgent, on March 27th, RADAR provided an offer to assist with her heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take Cookie. Thanks to relentless networking, a rescue came forward. On April 8th, through the efforts of Toby Ward, Seven Star Rescue in Michigan was approved to take Cookie!
Cookie had her heartworm treatment done on April 14th and 15th. After two weeks in temporary foster care with Bess Huddleston, Cookie will be off to Michigan. Bess had this to share; “We love Cookie! She is a sweet cuddle bug! She is such a great, great dog. So sweet and calm! I wish we could keep her!” The shelter had reported that Cookie was good with both people and dogs.

RADAR paid all of Cookie’s heartworm treatment costs totaling $215.
