Fergie is a beautiful brindle Boxer blend. This medium-sized, four-year-old girl was found as a stray and taken to the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on April 19th. Fergie needed to find her forever home, but being heartworm positive was a major hurdle to her securing a rescue commitment.
On May 17th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program began her quest to find a rescue for Fergie. A few days later when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut came forward to take Fergie, the only thing standing in the way was the cost of her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou turned to RADAR for help, and we agreed to do just that!
Fergie received her heartworm treatment on June 1st. December Clark, also with Shelter Animal Advocates and The Heart Beat Goes On program, told us this about Fergie: “She’s cheerful, cat and dog friendly, and leash trained. Fergie is eager to please. She has a gentle nature about her. This poor girl is clueless as to what is going on with her. She wonders how she got here and wants to trust.” To see more photos of Fergie, click here.
RADAR paid all $287 of the heartworm treatment costs for Fergie.
