Jack is a joyful two-year old Bully Breed mix who was found wandering the busy roads of South Carolina one day. On June 26th, animal control took him to the Lancaster County Animal Shelter. Even though Jack was very scared at first, he grew to love everyone around him. The problem was, Jack had heartworms, which put him at risk.
On August 1st, the shelter reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with Jack. We agreed to assist with the cost of his heartworm treatment, which would be an incentive for a rescue to pull him. On August 18th, Twenty Paws Rescue in Brooklyn, New York, pulled him from the shelter, and on September 21st and 22nd, Jack received his heartworm treatment!
Jack ended up being a favorite at Lancaster County Animal Shelter because of his loving demeanor. Carissa Valenti with the shelter said this about him: “Jack loves everyone, and was so happy to see our volunteers every day and get his walk and play time.” His rescue has also been very impressed! They tell us that Jack is “Gentle, happy, kiss-a-bull, hug-a-bull, love-a-bull, and oh so adopt-a-bull! Jack loves to make friends everywhere he goes!” To see more photos of Jack, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Jack.
