Pascal needed more than a pen pal to boost his morale about being stuck in his locale! And that locale was the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. On June 6th, Pascal was surrendered to the shelter by his owners because they were moving. Bad enough for Pascal to be a seven-year-old Hound mix at a rural high-kill shelter, but then came the grim news: he was heartworm positive. That meant he was not eligible for adoption, but would need a rescue commitment to spare his life.
On June 13th, Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program began to spread the word about Pascal to rescues. On June 24th the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) in Bamberg County in South Carolina expressed interest in taking Pascal, but only if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Mary Lou quickly turned to RADAR for help, and we agreed immediately. He received his heartworm treatment on July 13th.
December Clark with The Heart Beat Goes On program, told us this about Pascal: “He’s doing great! He’s starting to calm down in general, and can now be let loose in the house (although I have to put the cats away!). He’s potty trained and kennel/crate trained (although he requires a blanket over his kennel). He’s great with people and other dogs! He’s high energy; I would never guess that he’s a senior! He’s a counter surfer and a digger, but he’s starting to listen to commands. He’s scared of just about everything and requires a little extra love to get through life’s traumas (like fireworks or thunder). A very sweet dog and a typical Hound!” Click here to view more photos of Pascal.
RADAR paid all of Pascal’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $413.
