“Ohana” means family, and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. Unfortunately, Lilo was one of the many forgotten strays that arrived at the Lee County Animal Shelter in Bishopville, South Carolina, on January 3rd. Lilo, a six-year-old Bully Breed mix longed to find an Ohana of her own, but the odds were stacked against her when she tested positive for heartworms.

After spending almost a month in the shelter, Virginia Paws for Pits in Virginia agreed to help Lilo find her Ohana if her heartworms could be treated. Brandi Sowell, RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, asked us for help on January 27th. We provided a grant to cover the cost of Lilo’s heartworm treatment to seal her rescue deal! Lilo had her heartworm treatment on February 13th.

Here is what Lilo’s foster had to say about her, “Lilo is absolutely perfect! I love her, and will never understand how amazing dogs like her end up in the shelter. She immediately loved my dogs and even tries to share a crate with them! She’s polite and easygoing. She’s really amazing, and whoever adopts her is going to be so lucky!” Click here to view more photos of Lilo.

RADAR paid all of Lilo’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.

UPDATE! All funds for Lilo have been raised! Thank you!
