What do you call our assistance for this dog? Yes, Gator-aid! This approximately 18-month-old Labrador Retriever mix was no longer wanted by his owners. So in mid-February, Gator was dropped off at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in rural Bamberg County in South Carolina.
The folks at MAMAS do so much with so little to save as many animals as possible in Bamberg County. The county has no municipal animal shelter, so MAMAS operates its own shelter. A RADAR supporter put MAMAS on our radar. When we told them about RADAR, it was like manna for MAMAS! Meanwhile, as both a black dog and a heartworm positive dog, Gator was a worthy candidate to be the first at-risk dog for RADAR to assist at MAMAS. We committed to cover the cost of his heartworm treatment, which he received on March 19th.
This friendly and outgoing dog is now ready to find his forever family. To see more photos of Gator, click here.
RADAR has paid all of Gator’s heartworm treatment costs of $260.
