Rainer has seen some rainy days in his life, and was in great need of some sunshine when he arrived at the Columbus County Animal Control in North Carolina on April 18th. Brought in as a stray, this three-year-old Collie mix was understandably timid. Whatever Rainer had been through, it led up to him being heartworm positive, which greatly impacted his chances of being rescued or adopted.
Hope for Rainer’s sunny days got a little bit stronger when Madi Joselyn of the Burlington County Animal Alliance (BCAA) in New Jersey, reached out to us about Rainer. If we could provide assistance with the cost of Rainer’s heartworm treatment, he would be pulled from the shelter and be one step closer to finding his forever home. We agreed to assist, and he got his treatment on June 3rd.
We learned from Rainer’s foster that he is a super sweet, laid back kind of guy. “He’s shy, but very loving once he knows his people,” they said. Click here to view more photos of Rainer.
RADAR paid all of Rainer’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $352.
