There was quite a frenzy to save Lindsey. A two-year-old Bulldog mix, Lindsey was picked up as a stray by animal control on November 14th and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. It was bad enough that Lindsey had cherry eye in her right eye, but of much more serious concern was her testing heartworm positive. The shelter’s policy does not allow heartworm positive dogs to be adopted. Lindsey’s only hope of getting out of the shelter alive was a rescue commitment.
When it came to saving Lindsey, there was nothing whimsey in the efforts of Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program. Starting on November 21st, Mary Lou got the word out to rescues about Lindsey. As the situation became more dire, Mary Lou requested RADAR’s assistance on November 29th. Shelter Animals Advocates in South Carolina would take Lindsey if enough funding for her cherry eye surgery and heartworm treatment could be found. We agreed to help.
Lindsey’s cherry eye surgery took place on December 1st, followed by her heartworm treatment the next day. Now Lindsey has gone from having a cherry eye to having a cheery eye! Lindsey gets along with other dogs and has no food aggression. Her overall behavior was listed as good. Click here to view more photos of Lindsey.
RADAR paid $400 towards Lindsey’s cherry eye surgery and heartworm treatment costs.
