Nick’s rescue commitment with RADAR’s help came just in the nick of time. It was way back on August 11th when this three to four-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier Mix arrived as a stray at the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina. Despite being a great dog, because of his breed mix and having heartworms, he lingered at the shelter for nearly six months. His time would be up on February 11th, when he would be euthanized.
On February 6th, Maple Leaf Mutts in Vermont made an urgent request to RADAR. If we could help with Nick’s heartworm treatment costs, the rescue would pull him. “He has had three rescues commit and then back out on him,” the rescue told us. “We would like to give this boy a chance.” We agreed at once and Nick was safe! On February 9th, he was transported to Vermont, and received his first heartworm treatment on April 14th.
“Nick is a beautiful silvery blue color,” the rescue shared with us. “He is loving and playful, but he’s also energetic and strong. Nick is responding well to training, and plays nicely with female dogs and submissive male dogs. Thanks to RADAR for helping to cover Nick’s heartworm treatments, which are quite costly, and he wouldn’t survive without them.” To see more photos of Nick, click here.
RADAR paid all $258 of the costs for the first heartworm treatment for Nick.
