When it’s time for Sheba’s bath, what do you say? “Bathsheba!” Three years old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Sheba was found as a stray on November 18th and admitted to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. A wonderful dog like Sheba should have no problem finding an adopter or rescue, but Sheba was large and black. Even worse, she was heartworm positive, and that meant she was not eligible for adoption at this shelter. Only a rescue commitment could save Sheba.
On November 28th, Mary Lou Seymour of The Heart Beat Goes On program began her quest to find a rescue for Sheba. On December 5th, Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut offered to take Sheba. However, funding needed to be found for her heartworm treatment costs. Mary Lou knew just what to do: ask RADAR! We agreed to help and Sheba was safe!
Sheba received her heartworm treatment on December 13th. December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with The Heart Beat Goes On program, described Sheba to us as a friendly and happy-go-lucky girl. To see more photos of Sheba, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Sheba.
UPDATE! All funds for Sheba have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Sheba has been adopted!
