Edgar Allen Poe would have a hard time trying to find anything bad to say about this Raven! A Doberman somewhere between three and five years old, this gentle gal was brought in to the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on November 8th. Unfortunately, Raven tested positive for heartworm disease, which put her life at risk at the shelter.
On December 15th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program reached out to RADAR for help. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut was interested in saving Raven, but she was still in need of heartworm treatment. We agreed to provide assistance, and she received her treatment on December 21st. She’d be bothered by pesky heartworms nevermore!
Raven has been described as friendly, though a little cautious at first. December Clark with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program, had this to share with us:” She has a gentle spirit, and she really loves spending time with people. Though she doesn’t much enjoy the company of cats, she likes to hang out with other dogs.” Click here to view more photos of Raven.
RADAR paid all of Raven’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $341.
UPDATE! Raven has been adopted!
