What makes Mason marvelous? So many things! A three and a half-year-old Bully Breed mix, this guy arrived at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 14th when he was brought in as a stray. And while Mason had all the qualities to be any man’s best friend, he also had a couple of big obstacles to get past in order to be rescued or adopted. Being a Bully Breed mix and testing positive for heartworms would surely diminish his chances, but there was still hope for Mason.
Luckily for Mason, Shelter Animals Advocates (SAA) in South Carolina and its Heart Beat Goes On program worked with Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut to take him and five other dogs at this overcrowded shelter. However, all of them needed heartworm treatment in order to get their rescue commitment. Mary Lou Seymour with SAA reached out to RADAR on December 6th for help. We agreed to assist with all six dogs!
Mason received his heartworm treatments on December 12th and 13th. December Clark, also with SAA, had this to tell us about Mason: “He’s housebroken, calm in a kennel, great in playgroup and easy to walk. He’s a sweet boy!” To see more photos of Mason, click here.
RADAR paid all $357 of the heartworm treatment costs for Mason.
UPDATE! All funds for Mason have been raised! Thank you!
