It would have been rotten for Cotton to have been forgotten! But thanks to the team efforts of so many, that was not the case. Two years old and a Hound-Labrador Retriever mix, the 50-pound Cotton arrived as a stray on January 19th at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Testing heartworm positive meant that Cotton could not be adopted from this shelter; it would would take a rescue commitment to save his life.

On February 2nd, Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program began the team effort by trying to find a rescue for Cotton. On February 12th, the team at Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut offered to take him. However, funding would be needed for his heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou turned to the RADAR team for help, and thanks to our dedicated team of supporters, we were able to agree to cover the costs.

Cotton had his heartworm treatment done on February 16th. December Clark, another member of The Heart Beat Goes On team, told us this about Cotton: “He’s an easygoing and friendly boy who loves to run! He has fair amount of energy. He’s a dream dog to care for!” Click here to view more photos of Cotton.

RADAR paid all of Cotton’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $319.
