Ozark, a three- to four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, would enjoy watching the Netflix series “Ozark” with his new family. A handsome, black-furred dog, he came into Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on April 25th. The shelter staff contacted Ruthie Rish at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in adjoining Bamberg County, asking if MAMAS could take Ozark. The deal was made and Ozark transferred to MAMAS on May 5th. Ozark tested heartworm positive and he was going to need some financial assistance (legal of course, unlike all the money laundering in “Ozark”) to have his heartworms treated and make him healthy again.

Ruthie Rish of MAMAS requested RADAR’s help with the cost of Ozark’s heartworm treatment on May 12th. Lab Lovers Rescue in New York wanted to take him if he first got his heartworm treatment. We agreed to help and things all fell into place quickly for Ozark after that. He had his heartworm treatment the very next day, May 13th and was transported north on May 16th.

“Ozark is a very sweet dog and deserves the best home,” Ruthie told us. “He prefers female dogs as he does not get along with all male dogs.” Several of his transporters commented that Ozark is very vocal and quite the talker! Ozark is looking forward to his new life and looking for that good, forever home all dogs deserve! Be sure to view more photos in Ozark’s gallery.

RADAR paid all of Ozark’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $329.
