There’s the Biblical story of Cain and Abel. But in this case, it’s more a story of who would be able to save Kane! On September 16th, Kane, a two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, arrived at the Chesterfield County Animal Services shelter in South Carolina. We’re not sure how or why Kane ended up in the shelter. However, we do know that he had heartworms. The combination of being a black dog and heartworm positive limited Kane’s chances of finding an adopter or rescue.

On September 22nd, Cyndi Berkowitz with Paws4Rescue in Connecticut contacted RADAR regarding Kane. Cyndi was interested in pulling Kane if we would assist with his heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help and Kane was safe! After recovering from hookworms and waiting for heartworm medications that were on backorder, Kane was finally able to get his heartworm treatment done on November 8th.

“Kane is sweet and friendly,” Cyndi shared with us. “He gets along great with other dogs and will always greet you with his quirky smile! He is a hefty 70 pounds, but loves to play and ride in the car. He is a great dog waiting for his second chance!” To see more photos of Kane, click here.

RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Kane.

UPDATE! All funds for Kane have been raised! Thank you!
