Without some much-needed help, things would quickly get very hairy for Harry. A four-year-old Hound-Retriever mix, Harry was found as a stray on August 16th and brought to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Sadly, no one ever claimed him. A great dog like Harry usually would have no problem finding an adopter or rescue, but he tested heartworm positive, and that meant he was not eligible for adoption at this shelter. It would take a rescue commitment to save Harry.
When Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program found a rescue interested in taking Harry, she wasted no time in trying to seal the deal. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut would take Harry if funding could be found for his heartworm treatment costs. On August 20th, Mary Lou asked RADAR for help, and we agreed!
Harry received his heartworm treatment on August 28th. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animal Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program, described Harry this way: “He’s a gentle, happy-go-lucky boy. I love his brindle coloring. He’s just gorgeous!” Click here to view more photos of Harry.
RADAR paid all of Harry’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $293.
