Lilacs have been considered a symbol of love, which is exactly what this three-year-old Miniature Pinscher needed when she arrived at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 16th. She was seized from her previous owner, who could not properly care for her. Lilac was severely underweight and had skin issues, and as is the case with many dogs in similar circumstances, Lilac was heartworm positive.
Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program started networking to get a rescue commitment for Lilac. On December 15th, she reached out to RADAR to ask if we could help cover the cost of Lilac’s heartworm treatment, if so, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut would take her. We agreed to assist, and Lilac was safe! She received her heartworm treatment on December 21st.
Despite having lived in such bad conditions and having lacked even the most basic care, Lilac remains sweet and loyal. “This little girl is an angel,” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program, told us. “She is potty trained and has a great, calm manner about her. She walks along beside you calmly, and is happy to just sit with you.” Click here to view more photos of Lilac.
RADAR paid all of Lilac’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $299.
