Pippy always has a little pep in her step, despite coming from a sad situation. This two-year-old Hound-Lab mix ended up at the Greenwood County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on September 4th. She arrived in bad condition from a cruelty case, having been kept on a chain with no food at her previous residence. Poor Pippy also tested positive for heartworms, which lessened her chances of being rescued or adopted.
Mary Lou Seymour with the Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program worked her magic to find a rescue to take Pippy. On September 15th, when Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut stepped up to take her, the only thing still needed was funding for her heartworm treatment. Mary Lou asked for our help and we agreed to assist. On September 29th, Pippy received her heartworm treatment.
December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On, told us this about Pippy: “She’s a silly-sweet, confident girl who wags her tail fast and furious! She seems to like other dogs. When trying to take her photos, she would not look at the camera!” Click here to view more photos of Pippy.
RADAR paid all of Pippy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $308.
