Sara lived in a home that had eight Labrador Retrievers, including Sara. Her owner was moving and could not take the dogs. He found homes for four of the dogs and brought the rest to the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society shelter (MAMAS) in Bamberg County, South Carolina on June 12th. All four of the dogs tested heartworm positive. Sara, at two-years-old, was very pregnant. Sara gave birth to ten puppies in the shelter (so aptly named for this mama!) and was a good mother. She needed heartworm treatment, but first she needed to wean her puppies.
Ruthie Rish of MAMAS asked for RADAR’s help with Sara’s heartworm treatment on June 26th. We agreed to cover the costs. After weaning her puppies, Sara was able to have her heartworm treatment done on August 5th.
Sara is relieved to have completed her heartworm treatment and motherly duties. MAMAS says she is a sweet and calm dog with a lovely golden coat. Volunteers say she is “absolutely precious!” Sara is hoping for a rescue and then a forever home that will treat her as the precious dog she is. Be sure to view more photos in Sara’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Sara’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $180.
