Siggy, a one-year-old Bully Breed mix, made her way to the Fairfield County Animal Control and Adoption Center in South Carolina as a stray on the very last day of 2019. It was almost as if Siggy, timid and emaciated with her hip bones protruding, had a New Year’s resolution to seek out a better life. Siggy had gone through a bad first year of life and she was already heartworm positive at a young age. Could a rescue find funding for costly heartworm treatment to make 2020 and the rest of Siggy’s life better than her first year had been?
Samira Yaghi, the volunteer Networking and Rescue Coordinator at the Fairfield County shelter reached out to RADAR for help on January 15th. She told us that South of the Bully Rescue was interested in helping Siggy, but help was needed to cover her heartworm treatment costs. We committed to helping Siggy with a healthy new 2020 so that she could get a second chance of having the good life she deserves. Siggy had her back-to-back heartworm treatments on January 29th and 30th.
Siggy’s foster says that Siggy has come out of her shell and is a loving, velcro dog. “She’s learned to love her own room, blanket and toys. With love and support, Siggy will grow into her ‘new year, new you’ world and finally understand what it means to have a home.” Be sure to view more photos in Siggy’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Siggy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $261.
