Was Holloway a runaway? We don’t know for sure, but what we do know is that this two-year-old Lab mix ended up at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on August 23rd. Holloway was already at a disadvantage at the shelter by being a black dog and heartworm positive, but Hurricane Florence’s mid-September arrival was only going to make matters worse for him.
Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program was not about to let Holloway become a castaway. In the nick of time she convinced Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut to take him. There was just one hurdle to overcome: the cost of his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou requested our help, we agreed to assist, and Holloway was safe! He had his heartworm treatment done on September 29th.
“Holloway is very sweet, and playful,” December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, told us. “He’s a wonderful, relaxing and unassuming male. He’s potty trained and walks well on a leash. He’s a great dog!” To see more photos of Holloway, click here.
RADAR paid all $340 of the heartworm treatment costs for Holloway.
