When Jack arrived at the Lee County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on January 8th, his physical condition prompted more questions than answers. This two-year-old Pit Bull mix had not been on this Earth for long, but had already suffered at the hands of humans. Jack arrived emaciated with wounds all over his body including five BB or buckshot pellets embedded in his face. On top of all these issues Jack tested positive for heartworms, which made the chances of Jack getting out of the shelter slim to none.
Time ticked away and Jack was placed on the shelter’s urgent list once he reached his one month stay. Luckily, Virginia Paws for Pits in Virginia offered to rescue Jack, if his heartworm treatment could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, Brandi Sowell, immediately contacted RADAR for help on February 10th. RADAR agreed to assist with Jack’s heartworm treatment, officially sealing his rescue deal. Jack received his heartworm treatment on April 6th.
Here is what a shelter volunteer had to say about Jack, “He has been failed by humans at every turn, but still refuses to give up on them. He is one of the silliest and sweetest boys you’ll ever meet. He’s always happy to go for a walk, or play a game of fetch. Jack has a wonderful future ahead of him now, and we couldn’t be more thankful!” To view more photos of Jack, click here.
RADAR paid all $294 of the heartworm treatment costs for Jack.
