The morning of Friday, March 13th found Mack in his run feeling lucky that he wasn’t a slinky black cat. Mack, a two-year-old Pit Bull mix the color of warm toast, is not superstitious, but a dog hears things. One thing Mack heard before the end of that inauspicious day was that he had tested positive for heartworms and would not be eligible for adoption. This made his right ear stand up! Mack had arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray just two days earlier on March 11th. And now he could be “put to sleep” at any time.
RADAR wanted to help Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program with “the most urgent of her urgent dogs” that Friday the 13th. Mary Lou said that Mack needed all the help he could get. No rescues had shown interest in pulling him and the shelter was crowded. We pledged $300 towards Mack’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. On March 16th, Mack was safe with Lowcountry Bully Breed Rescue in South Carolina!
Mack had his heartworm treatment done on March 24th. It was a success, and Mack will soon be able to return to his exuberant playful sweet self. But the treatment didn’t fix that inquiring right ear! Click here to view more photos of Mack.
RADAR paid $300 towards Mack’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Mack have been raised! Thank you!
