Copper was listed as a mixed breed, and some of that mix sure looks a lot like a fox! Five-year-old Copper arrived as a stray on July 24th at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. He had an injured eye (which the shelter had removed), many missing teeth and tested heartworm positive. He was not eligible for adoption at this shelter. Only a rescue commitment could save his life.
On August 14th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program asked RADAR for help with Copper’s heartworm treatment costs so they could pull him. We agreed to assist. He received his heartworm treatment on August 17th. Shortly thereafter, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut decided to take him.
December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program, described Copper this way: “He’s OMG gorgeous! He’s a bright, cheerful little guy. He has a dainty, prissy ballerina-like walk. His daddy must have been a postman in a fox suit!” To see more photos of Copper, click here.
RADAR paid all $307 of the heartworm treatment costs for Copper.
