Miss Mammie got her name because she had to have three mammary tumors removed. The eight-year-old Beagle mix entered the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina on November 23rd as a stray. Not only did Mammie need surgery for her mammary tumors, but she was also heartworm positive. Mammie’s future looked very bleak.
In early December the shelter contacted RADAR to see if we could help with Mammie (known as Bacon at the shelter). We agreed to provide an offer to assist with Mammie’s heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. In mid-December Crooked Creek Animal Rescue in South Carolina pulled Mammie and placed her in a foster home. A few days later the three mammary tumors were successfully removed. Mammie had her heartworm treatment done on February 23rd and 24th.
“Mammie is a shy girl who is finally understanding the bad times are over,” her foster told us. “Her nose is in the air all the time, and she’s always there to walk with me no matter what I’m doing or where I’m going. Mammie just wants that love and affection that she’s never had before. Mammie is amazing!” To view more photos of Mammie, click here.
RADAR paid all of Mammie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $150.
