With her somewhat comical and scruffy look, one might snicker seeing Snickers! On August 15th, this five-year-old mixed breed was surrendered to the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina. It was bad enough that this older, black dog ended up in this small rural shelter, but even worse when she tested heartworm positive.
On August 25th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program reached out to RADAR for help with Snickers. Dog Star Rescue in Connecticut was interested in taking her. As usual, the real challenge was to find funding for the cost of her heartworm treatment. We agreed to cover the costs to secure her rescue commitment.
Snickers received her heartworm treatment on August 28th. We were told this about Snickers from December Clark, also with Shelter Animals Advocates and The HeartBeat Goes On program: “This girl is the nicest, sweetest girl. She is painfully shy. She’s potty trained and has good manners. She never gets in the way. She will stretch out for a belly rub. She’s a angel!” Click here to view more photos of Snickers.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Snickers, totaling $324.
