While it only takes two to tango, it took real teamwork to save Django! Two years old and a German Shepherd, Django arrived as a stray at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on June 22nd. As if being a larger black dog didn’t make Django’s chances of getting adopted or rescued difficult enough, he also tested heartworm positive.
On August 25th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program managed to find a rescue for Django. However, in order for Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut to take him, help was needed for his heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou reached out to RADAR and we provided an assistance grant.
Django received his heartworm treatment on August 28th. We were told this about Django from December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program: “Django has all of the wonderful qualities that people love in German Shepherds. He is so gorgeous! He is a wonderful dog full of energy.” Click here to view more photos of Django.
RADAR paid all of Django’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $357.
