In Latin, the name Olive symbolizes peace. This Olive, a four to five-year-old Lab mix, perfectly lives up to her name with her kind and friendly spirit. She arrived at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on February 1st as a stray. While it seemed clear that she had been owned by someone previously, given that she had a collar on, no one ever came in to inquire about her at the shelter. Sadly, she was also heartworm positive.
On February 19th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program contacted RADAR requesting our help with Olive. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut was interested in taking her, provided that her heartworm treatment was taken care of. We agreed to assist, and she received her treatment on February 26th!
Olive is very well-mannered, and gets along with everyone she meets. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animal Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program, told us that Olive is “just a wonderful girl” who loves people, cats and other dogs. To see more photos of Olive, click here.
RADAR paid all $341 of the heartworm treatment costs for Olive.
UPDATE! All funds for Olive have been raised! Thank you!
