Jazz was in life-threatening peril twice. The first time was when Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas in mid-September. Fortunately, this two- to three-year-old Lab mix was found as a stray and taken to the Horry County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Testing positive for heartworms once more put Jazz’s life on the line. With no rescue or adopter interest, Jazz was scheduled to be euthanized at 4 pm on October 18th.
With only several hours left for Jazz, Heather Labbe with the New England Lab Rescue in Maine made an urgent plea to RADAR to see if we could help. If we could provide assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment, the rescue would commit to taking Jazz. We immediately agreed. “She will be able to be saved,” Heather said, “now that RADAR has let us know that they would help with her treatment. We know she will find a loving forever home in New England.” Jazz received her heartworm treatment on October 23rd.
Jazz has been described as a great dog who’s good on a leash and good with other animals. “We are so greatly appreciative of RADAR’s support for Jazz,” Heather shared with us. “We would not have been able to save her without knowing that she would be getting the treatment, so this is such a great story of saving a life because of your support!” Liz, her foster Mom, shared with us that she told Jazz that her treatment is “so worth it, you will have a great life ahead!” Click here to view more photos of Jazz.
RADAR paid all of Jazz’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $362.
