What does Mason have in common with a Mason jar? Well, losing his home and family was certainly very jarring. On March 29th, Mason was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. The owners of this one-year-old Labrador Retriever mix told the shelter that they travel too much and could no longer keep Mason. While Labs are a popular breed, he was large and black. And of even greater concern, he was heartworm positive.
After nearly six weeks at the shelter, there was finally rescue interest in Mason. On May 9th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, appealed to us to help with Mason’s heartworm treatment. Good Shepherd K-9 Rescue in New York was interested in taking Mason, but only if his heartworm treatment costs could be provided. We agreed and Mason was safe! He had his heartworm treatment on May 31st.
Susan shared this bio with us: “With superstar good looks and a big personality to match, Mason will make a perfect addition to an active family. Mason is an energetic, bouncy young guy who is ready to go and do. He loves the water! Mason is a happy, exuberant guy who loves attention. He would love to join a family who will take him along on their adventures to the park, the lake or the beach, and who will also give him training and mental stimulation to exercise his brain as well.” To view more photos of Mason, click here.
RADAR paid all of Mason’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $281.
