If Hawk could talk, he could tell you how he keeps his cheerful mood despite his troubles. Hawk, a three-year-old Bully Breed mix, arrived at the North Augusta Animal Control facility in Aiken County in South Carolina as a stray on July 16th, and then was transferred to the Aiken County Animal Shelter. Things were looking up for him, as he was adopted on July 21st. But a short time later, he was surrendered back to the shelter. That wasn’t the worst of Hawk’s troubles. He tested heartworm positive and the combination of his breed mix and heartworm status were a big obstacle to Hawk’s future health and happiness.

On August 5th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) in South Carolina reached out to us to see if we could help Hawk. SAA would be able to save Hawk from the shelter if we would cover his heartworm treatment costs. We said we would give Hawk our help. He had his heartworm treatment on August 15th and 16th.

Hawk is a handsome gray and tan fellow. He hasn’t let his neglectful past get in the way of his happy outlook on life. This 55-pound guy is looking forward to finding a caring, forever home now that his heartworms have been treated. Click here to view more photos of Hawk.
