When Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont contacted RADAR on February 15th about Kingston, they had four goals: offer him a rescue placement, provide him with a foster home, get his heartworm treatment done, and find a perfect family for him. All of this hinged on RADAR’s commitment to assist with his heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, and one by one, all four goals were achieved!
Kingston, a two-year-old Terrier mix, arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on December 7th. “This guy has been in the shelter for over two months,” the rescue told us when they made their request. “He is now on the urgent list. He was probably overlooked because he is heartworm positive.” We agreed to help, and Kingston made his way to his foster home in Vermont, and had his heartworm treatment on April 11th and 12th.
The shelter shared this with us about Kingston: “He was a little scared but still friendly. He is very docile and sweet. He is a gentle, low-energy boy who just wants a family of his own.” And that’s just what he got when he was adopted on April 20th! Click here to view more photos of Kingston.
RADAR paid all of Kingaton’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $200.
UPDATE! Kingston has been adopted! His new name is Monty!
