Hold your horses! We’ve got ourselves a Mustang! This one to two-year-old Redbone Coonhound mix was found as a stray on July 27th. Animal Control took him to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. He was described as a real sweetheart who was curious about everything. Sadly, he tested heartworm positive. On September 10th Mustang was corralled to a kennel for dogs in queue to be euthanized. He only had until September 16th to get adopted or rescued.
On September 10th Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, pleaded with us to help Mustang. We immediately provided an offer to cover Mustang’s heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take him. Just in time, Tiny Miracles Farm Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Mustang with RADAR’s help! He received his heartworm treatment on September 29th.
This was shared with us about Mustang: “He is a cheerful young guy who doesn’t let his present circumstances get him down. Mustang is playful and bouncy, even bubbly at times, and would probably be a good match for a family with older children who could join him in active play. Friendly and outgoing, Mustang greets people readily, and even hands out bear hugs to those who are willing!” To see more photos of Mustang, click here.
RADAR paid all of Mustang’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $312.
UPDATE! All funds for Mustang have been raised! Thank you!
