Sound the Siren! This dog needed more than a bell or a whistle or a horn to save him! An approximately two-year-old Pit Bull mix, Siren arrived as a stray at the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina on November 6th. Siren hit the trifecta when it comes to being an at-risk dog: a Pit Bull mix, black and heartworm positive. After nearly three months with no adopter or rescue interest, Siren’s status became increasingly urgent.
On January 29th, as an incentive for a rescue to take Siren, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his heartworm treatment. Just a a few days later, on February 3rd, Home Free Animal Rescue in New Jersey agreed to take Siren! His heartworm treatment was done on February 5th.
The folks at the shelter had this to tell us about Siren: “He was good with people and other dogs, and didn’t seem to mind cats. He liked to play with toys, and was always very curious. He would sit on command and walked well on a leash. He would wait patiently in his kennel for attention. He was very sweet and loved to be near you! Siren is a good boy, a cool dude and quite handsome too!” To see more photos of Siren, click here.
RADAR paid all $225 of Siren’s heartworm treatment costs.
