Jimmy literally has the scars of a former rough life. When he was picked up as a stray by animal control on January 12th, he had an embedded collar. Upon his arrival at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina, he was taken to the vet to have the collar removed. But that wasn’t the only problem for Jimmy, a three to five-year-old Lab mix, he also tested positive for heartworms.
On March 18th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our help with Jimmy. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania would take him if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We agreed and he received his heartworm treatment on March 20th.
We were told this about Jimmy from his time at the shelter: “He’s a super-friendly guy and a staff favorite! He has an electric butt-wiggle and he could hardly contain his happiness when approached at his kennel gate. He knows how to live in the moment. He’s a sweet and happy boy.” To see more photos of Jimmy, click here.
RADAR paid all $303 of the heartworm treatment costs for Jimmy.
