There are Jenny wrens and Jenny donkeys, and now we have Jenny, the dog! We doubt that Jenny can sing like the bird or is as stubborn as the donkey, but she is sure to please with her soft grey coat and radiant brown eyes. Jenny is a three-year-old Bully Breed mix who was found as a stray, She was taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on August 25th. As is all too often the case in the Carolinas, Jenny tested heartworm positive. Her only way out of the shelter alive would be with a rescue commitment.

Mary Lou Seymour with the The Heart Beat Goes On program was not going to hee-haw around with Jenny’s life at stake. She would ruffle some feathers if need be to save Jenny. Despite her best efforts, Mary Lou was finding rescues to be as stubborn as a Jenny donkey in stepping up to take Jenny. With her time about up, on September 13th Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, decided to take Jenny if RADAR could help with her heartworm treatment costs. We agreed and Jenny was safe!

On September 20th, Jenny received her heartworm treatment. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On, had this to share with us about Jenny: “She is a calm and sweet dog. She does very well on a leash. She gets along great with other dogs.” Click here to view more photos of Jenny.

RADAR paid all of Jenny’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $375.

UPDATE! Jenny has been adopted!
