The name Layla means night, but this Layla is white! Go figure! Estimated to be eight years old, Layla is a Labrador Retriever mix who arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on September 13th as a stray. Typically, a Lab would be adopted quickly. However, Layla tested heartworm positive. Bad enough to be a senior dog, but as a heartworm positive dog Layla was not permitted to be adopted. Her only hope was a rescue commitment.
Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program, who works day and night to save the Aiken heartworm positive dogs, went to work to find a rescue for Layla. On September 25th, Purr-Fect Match Animal Rescue in Wisconsin expressed interest in taking Layla. The only obstacle was funding. Mary Lou asked RADAR for assistance with Layla’s heartworm treatment. We agreed, and the deal was sealed on September 30th. Layla had her heartworm treatment on October 5th and 6th.
December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On program, described Layla as being a friendly girl. “She is nice and easy. Layla walks great on a leash too. She’s a grand senior girl, and will make someone a great companion.” Click here to view more photos of Layla.
RADAR paid $300 towards Layla’s heartworm treatment costs.
