Lindy really suits the meaning of her name: beautiful, and sweet! This year-and-a-half-old Boxer mix ended up at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on April 12th. Finding a forever home was her goal, but her chances of being rescued or adopted were lessened by one big problem: she was heartworm positive.
On April 26th, Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) and its Heart Beat Goes On program in South Carolina reached out to RADAR to see if we could help. SAA was ready to pull Lindy from the shelter, but they needed assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment. We agreed to help, and she was safe! Lindy received her treatment on May 2nd.
December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with SAA, described Lindy to us as being nice and laid back, with a happy-go-lucky personality. Keep the paparazzi away from her though, because this girl isn’t much of a fan of photos. “She kept mean mugging me as I was taking her pictures. Totally bored with the whole process!” To see more photos of Lindy, click here.
RADAR paid all $349 of the heartworm treatment costs for Lindy.
