Millie was living in misery in a horrific hoarding situation when she was seized by animal control on March 7th. Millie, a three-year-old German Shepherd mix, was taken to the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. Not surprisingly, she was heartworm positive.
Mary Lou Seymour of the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program stood ready to help save Millie. When Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut came forward to take her on April 22nd, there was just one problem: finding funding for her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou asked RADAR for grant assistance, and we immediately agreed to help. Millie had her heartworm treatment on April 27th and 28th.
“This sweeter than sweet fur friend was living in awful conditions with a whole bunch of other helpless dogs and puppies,” said December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animal Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program. “Her coloring is striking throughout her coat, and with beautiful black tips. Women would kill for this hair color! She’s a super nice girl. Every day I tell her after she’s mended, someone will take give her the rags to riches life she deserves.” Click here to view more photos of Millie.
RADAR paid all of Millie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $324.
