In his song titled “Pass it On,” Jamaican singer-songwriter Bob Marley sang “Live for yourself and you will live in vain; live for others and you will live again.” This Marley, a two-year-old Lab mix, selflessly lives for her family. She ended up at the Lee County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on August 8th along with two of her adult pups, Macy and Miles, and their father, Maxwell. And that wasn’t all — Macy had more pups on the way. Sadly, Marley and her family lost their home when their owners decided to move. To top it all off, Marley was heartworm positive.
Brandi Sowell, RADAR’s liaison with the Lee County Animal Shelter, asked us for help with Marley on August 12th. New Chance Animal Rescue in New York agreed to take all four dogs, but needed help for Marley’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed. Macy, Miles and Maxwell went off to the rescue, with Macy giving birth to her pups on September 15th and Maxwell getting adopted on September 20th. Meanwhile, Marley stayed behind to get her heartworm treatment, which took place on August 27th. She was transported to the rescue on September 21st.
Marley’s foster family said that she is just the sweetest and most affectionate girl in the world! She is truly her foster mom’s shadow, follows her around the house, and can’t sit close enough to cuddle on the couch! She is very gentle, quiet and well behaved.

RADAR paid $250 towards Marley’s heartworm treatment costs.
