“Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” But this Happy had every reason to worry and not be happy. A one to two-year-old Pit Bull mix, Happy was a stray dog who animal control trapped on February 25th. He was then taken to the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina. As a black dog, a Pit Bull mix and heartworm positive, Happy sadly had no one interested in rescuing or adopting him.
The shelter requested RADAR’s help on March 2nd. The next day we provided an offer of assistance for Happy’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. Despite relentless networking efforts by many, for nearly two months Happy lived in limbo at the shelter with no interest. When the shelter got full, he went on the euthanasia list.
But on May 1st, Friends of Freddie in Long Island, New York, agreed to take Happy, which made everyone very happy indeed! He had his heartworm treatment done on May 2nd. RADAR covered the full cost of $220. The folks at the shelter told us that Happy is a great dog, and loves to play. He is good with adults, children, dogs and even cats!

RADAR paid all of Happy’s heartworm treatment cost of $220.
