Nicole has the distinct honor of marking a major milestone for RADAR. With our payment for Nicole’s heartworm treatment, we surpassed the $500,000 mark in grant funding provided to 2,055 RADAR-assisted at-risk dogs! A special thanks to all of our dedicated donors, supporters and volunteers for making this possible!

As for Nicole, she’s a good example of an at-risk dog for multiple reasons. At seven years old, she’s a senior. She’s a Bully Breed mix. And, she had heartworms. When her owner was arrested and sent to prison, she was surrendered to the North Augusta Animal Control facility in Aiken County, South Carolina on August 8th.

On August 19th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates in South Carolina and its HeartBeat Goes On program requested RADAR’s help for Nicole. Shelter Animals Advocates would take her, but funding would be needed for her heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist. She received her split heartworm treatments on August 24th and October 5th.

“Nicole is such a nice dog!” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program told us. “Looking at her pictures, you might think she was huge, but she’s not big. She’s calm and quiet and very cute!” Click here to view more photos of Nicole.

RADAR paid all of Nicole’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $380.

UPDATE! All funds for Nicole have been raised! Thank you!
