Every lass or laddie, mom or daddy, will love the humble Haddie! Found as a stray on September 19th, the two-year-old Bully Breed mix was taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. As with so many dogs in the Southeast, Haddie had the misfortune of testing heartworm positive. This shelter does not allow heartworm positive dogs to be adopted. Her only way out of the shelter alive would require a rescue commitment.
Mary Lou Seymour with the The Heart Beat Goes On program knew she just had to help Haddie. On October 3rd, she began her networking to find a rescue for Haddie. When no rescues came forward and with only three days left for Haddie, on October 18th, Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, decided they only had one option left: they would pull Haddie if RADAR could help with her heartworm treatment costs. We agreed and Haddie was safe!
Haddie had her heartworm treatment done on October 27th. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On, shared this with us about Haddie: “It’s as if she melts when petted! She stays very close to your side when walking. Haddie is very gentle and connected girl.” To see more photos of Haddie, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Haddie.
