Mya was perhaps named after the popular singer and songwriter Mya Marie Harrison. Mya the dog, a two- to three year-old Lab mix, arrived as a stray at the Clarendon County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on December 12th. Mya had a beautiful red coat and wonderful green eyes, but she was very thin. To add to her woes, she tested heartworm positive.
On January 18th, Julia Altman, executive director of the Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania, contacted RADAR. Her rescue wanted to help Mya but needed assistance with the heartworm treatment costs. We agreed to help! The very next week Mya was transported from the shelter to Pennsylvania. On February 12th, Mya completed her heartworm treatment.
“Mya is extremely affectionate and her tail never stops wagging!” the rescue said. “She is everything you love about a Lab and more!“ On Valentine’s Day, February 14th, Mya met her prospective adopters. It must have been love at first sight, because on February 16th, they adopted her! To see more photos of Mya, click here.
RADAR paid all $290 of the heartworm treatment costs for Mya.
UPDATE! Mya has been adopted!
