Shiloh sure needed some guardian angels. And that’s just what he got when Penny Angels Beagle Rescue in New Jersey was able to commit to take Shiloh because of RADAR’s assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment. On February 7th, this one to two-year-old Beagle was surrendered to the Kershaw County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina because he wasn’t a good rabbit hunter. The white part of his coat was green from being sprayed continuously with pesticides. And, of course, he had heartworms.
On March 13th, Stefanie McElveen of Kershaw County Humane Society reached out to RADAR for assistance with Shiloh’s heartworm treatment so that Penny Angels Beagle Rescue could take him. “We knew this wasn’t a hunting Beagle, but was a lap dog,” Stefanie told us. “Please help this young lad!” We agreed and he had his heartworm treatment on March 15th.
Patty, who volunteers with the rescue, picked up Shiloh from the vet following his treatment. She told us that “he is a love bug. I had him sitting beside me on an outdoor love seat and he kept inching closer and closer until he got in my lap! He had to give me kisses, too, and this was the first time we had met. Of course, it melted my heart. He is a Beagle, after all!” To see more photos of Shiloh, click here.
RADAR paid all $130 of the heartworm treatment costs for Shiloh.
