Whoever would commit to helping Scout would truly be making a Scout’s Honor! But finding a rescue to make that commitment would be a real challenge because he tested positive for heartworms. Two to three years old and a Beagle mix, Scout ended up as a stray at the Hampton County Shelter in South Carolina on October 20th.
Mary Lou Seymour with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program began her relentless efforts to find a rescue for Scout on November 4th. Three days later she succeeded in getting the interest of Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut. The only thing standing in the way was funding for his heartworm treatment. Mary Lou immediately reached out to RADAR to see if we could help, and we agreed! He received his treatment on November 15th!
December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and its Heart Beat Goes On program, described Scout this way: “He’s very friendly. He loves dogs, cats and people. He’s low energy, leash trained and just a super great guy all the way around!” His rescue told us that Scout “shows maturity and confidence, as though his life as a stray is in his past and he is ready to move on and accept the affection of those who will love him.” To see more photos of Scout, click here.
RADAR paid all of Scout’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $308.
