Yes, it’s the real McCoy! Approximately 18 months old and a Labrador Retriever-Bully Breed mix, McCoy arrived as a stray on July 6th at the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. This wonderful dog was not eligible to be adopted from the shelter because she tested positive for heartworms. Only a rescue commitment could save McCoy from being euthanized.
On July 14th, Mary Lou Seymour with the The Heart Beat Goes On program started her quest to find a rescue for McCoy. But there were no takers. So on July 24th, in order to spare McCoy’s life, Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization of The Heart Beat Goes On, opted to try to save her. Mary Lou urgently requested our help for McCoy’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed and the real McCoy was really safe!
McCoy had her heartworm treatment done on July 26th. A short time later, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut agreed to take her. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On, told us this us about McCoy: “She’s friendly, super sweet and only wants attention. She does need some leash work, but other than that, she is a amazing dog!” To view more photos of McCoy, click here.
RADAR paid all $375 of the heartworm treatment costs for McCoy.
