Sometimes a name really does describe a dog, and this little guy is indeed Shy! Approximately one-year old, Shy arrived as a stray, and a bit scraped up (he might have been hit by a car) at the Chester County Animal Care Control shelter in South Carolina on February 25th. Shy faced double trouble at the shelter by being both a Pit Bull mix and heartworm positive. He was going to need some extra help to make it out of the shelter alive.
In early March, the shelter reached out to RADAR to see if we could assist with Shy. We provided an offer to assist as an incentive for a rescue to take Shy. In early April, a rescue stepped up to take him, but then could not follow through. Shy was now on the urgent list. On April 10th, the Humane Society of Lancaster, SC agreed to take Shy!
Shy had his initial vetting and neutering done on April 11th, which RADAR paid. His heartworm treatment took place on April 15th. Thanks to the fulfilled pledges and donation of folks interested in helping with Shy, $185 of his $220 heartworm treatment cost was raised, and RADAR paid the remaining $35.

RADAR paid $89 for all of Shy’s initial vetting and neutering costs, and the remaining $35 balance for his heartworm treatment, for a total of $124.
