Mikey’s moving story is about just that: moving. When his family moved, they didn’t take Mikey with them, but left him behind and abandoned in the house. So this two to three-year-old, 50-pound blend of breeds ended up at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on February 28th. While Mikey’s family moved on, his heartworms did not.
Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program made her moves to find a rescue for Mikey. On March 20th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut offered to take him if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Mary Lou contacted RADAR for help and we agreed to assist! He received his heartworm treatment on March 23rd and 24th.
“Mikey knows basic commands like sit and shake.” said December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animal Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program. “He is dog and people friendly, leash trained and housebroken. Car rides are scary for him.” To see more photos of Mikey, click here.
RADAR paid all $343 of the heartworm treatment costs for Mikey.
