Ain’t life grand!? Little did Leah realize that she would become the 1,000th dog rescued by one of RADAR’s rescue partners, and thanks to our help, she became a grand dog indeed! Leah, a 45-pound, two-year-old, black Bully breed, was an owner surrender to the Allendale County Shelter in South Carolina on August 31st. With negative breed stereotypes, her status as an owner surrender, and her black color, Leah’s chances of getting adopted or pulled by a rescue were not looking good, and to make matters worse for poor Leah, she tested positive for heartworm.
Mary Lou Seymour with The HeartBeat Goes On program was determined to save Leah. Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, knew they would have to pull Leah to save her. On September 8th, Mary Lou contacted RADAR for assistance with Leah’s heartworm costs. We happily agreed, and Leah became the 1,000th dog saved by Shelter Animals Advocates! Leah had her heartworm treatment on September 16th.
Leah embraced the attention and regular meals she received at the shelter and showed her gratitude with a perpetually wiggling butt. Leah’s life has certainly improved now that she is on her way to having a clean bill of health, but she is not one to settle—she has goals! What would make her life truly grand would be a family that can reciprocate all the love she has to give. Leah wants to go on car rides, sleep in comfy beds, play tug with her people, eat tasty treats, and give bully kisses; in other words, lead a grand life! To see more photos of Leah, click here.
RADAR paid all $341 of the heartworm treatment costs for Leah .
