Gidget’s name might mean “small girl,” but her spirit is big. This one to two-year-old Bully Breed mix ended up at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on February 26th, entangled in weeds, after her chain broke off from it’s anchor stake. Having obviously not been well taken care of, it came as no surprise that Gidget was heartworm positive.
Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program knew it was time to give Gidget the life that she truly deserved. On March 20th, she reached out to RADAR to see if we could help. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut would take her, provided that her heartworm treatment could be taken care of. We agreed to assist, and she was safe! She received her treatment just days later on March 23rd and 24th.
“This gal was very lucky to be discovered and has a wonderful personality with a gorgeous fawn-color coat,” said December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program. Gidget’s sweet personality allows her to get along well with dogs, cats and people. “All of her nice qualities have helped me overlook the fact she is not potty trained yet!” December told us.

RADAR paid all $293 of the heartworm treatment costs for Gidget.
