Kit is a dog who has ‘the whole kit and kaboodle’ for a future owner! A Bully Breed mix, she arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County, South Carolina, on April 23rd. This two-year-old stray soon earned the title of “one of the best dogs at the shelter.” Why then wasn’t she snapped up by an adopter or rescue? Well, sadly, Kit tested heartworm positive. The cost of treating heartworms is beyond the means of most adopters and rescues.
On July 29th, Ruthie Rish with MAMAS, reached out to RADAR for help. Could we pay for Kit’s heartworm treatment costs so that Laura’s Hope Rescue in Pennsylvania could help Kit find a good home? We said we would cover those costs, and Kit completed her back-to-back heartworm injections on August 6th.
“Kit is totally reliable when it comes to getting along with other dogs,” Ruthie says. “She is on the submissive side but very loving and sweet with everybody. A total doll baby who will be a great friend and companion to anybody who gives her that chance.” Kit was transported to her rescue on August 10th. From her transporters, we were told that “Kit is easy going and happy… she is an absolute love bug.” To see more photos of Kit, click here.
RADAR paid all $270 of the heartworm treatment costs for Kit.
