Eve’s early life wasn’t easy, but she didn’t let it get to her. A four-year-old Pit Bull mix, she arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in rural Bamberg County in South Carolina on October 11th as a stray. Eve came to the shelter very skinny and carrying lots of fleas. Her teeth were ground almost completely down, and it was evident that she’d had puppies. Folks at the shelter wondered if her arrival there was the first time Eve had ever been allowed inside, and saw that she was desperately in need of a safe place to recover. To top it all off, Eve tested heartworm positive.
On November 12th, Ruthie Rish at MAMAS reached out to us to see if we could assist in the cost of her heartworm treatment. Eve had a rescue commitment with Buffalo Paws & Claws in New York for November 18th if funding could be secured and she could be treated in time. We agreed, and she was safe! Eve got her treatment just two days later on November 14th.
Despite spending her life neglected and consequently facing a number of health problems, Eve’s sweet nature remained intact. “She is a super sweet, gentle, and docile little gal who gets along great with everybody and just wants love. She loves to be inside with us,” Ruthie told us. Click here to view more photos of Eve.
RADAR paid all of Eve’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $180.
