Mona was a very popular name for girls born in the 1950s, but has since fallen in popularity. The name means ‘noble,’ but Mona wasn’t feeling very noble when she arrived at the Laurens County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 20th as a stray. This two-year old Bully Breed-Shar Pei mix was a petite and pretty apricot-colored girl but had a big barrier to adoption or rescue: she was heartworm positive.
On December 18th, DogGone Shelter Intervention in South Carolina requested RADAR’s assistance with heartworm treatment so that they could rescue Mona. Her five-day hold was up and she was on the euthanasia list. We agreed to help Mona, and on February 19th, she completed her heartworm treatment.
The rescue had this to say: “Mona has a quirky personality. She loves to jump and play with everyone. She grunts and growls when we ignore her and is eager for our attention. She loves attention! Mona would enjoy a home with other dogs and children.” Click here to view more photos of Mona.
RADAR paid all of Mona’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $234.
UPDATE! All funds for Mona have been raised! Thank you!
