How did loyal Grant end up needing a RADAR grant? Read his compelling story and find out all about him! A Shepherd mix and two years old, Grant was traveling along a road with another dog, an unfortunately common occurrence in the South. His canine friend was hit by a car and was killed. Grant would not leave his friend’s side for three days and growled at anyone who tried to come near his friend. Finally, after hunger got the best of him, Grant was caught and taken to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County in South Carolina on February 15th by Gail Posey, a MAMAS board member. Grant’s sweetness made him a candidate for adoption or rescue, but his heartworm positive status stood in the way.
Ruthie Rish with MAMAS reached out to RADAR about Grant on February 23rd. Could we help MAMAS with Grant’s heartworm costs so he could find a good home? “He should be a great candidate for adoption or rescue,” Ruthie told us, “if we can get him treated for his heartworms.” We agreed to assist, and on March 7th, Grant had his heartworm treatment.
Grant is a cute, fluffy fellow, who gets along well with people and other dogs. “Grant was understandably scared that first day he arrived,” Ruthie said, “but he is fine now, and such a nice boy. He has shown that he will be a very devoted dog, and someone will be lucky to have him be their best friend.” Click here to view more photos of Grant.
RADAR paid all of Grant’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $297.
