Ed Sullivan was quoted as saying this: “If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure. It transcends all barriers.” A five-year-old American English Coonhound, Sullivan needed some help from others when he was down on his luck. On August 16th, he arrived as a stray to Chesterfield County Animal Services in South Carolina. Being heartworm positive in a high-kill shelter put Sullivan at risk.
On August 30th, Rebecca Biles-Davis with the shelter and Kristen Kidwell with All 4 Paws Rescue in Pennsylvania got in touch with RADAR to see if we could help Sullivan. We agreed to provide assistance for the cost of his heartworm treatment, and Sullivan was pulled from the shelter on September 1st! He received his heartworm treatment on September 15th.
Folks at the rescue said this about Sullivan: “This big boy is absolutely gorgeous and just as sweet as can be! Sullivan LOVES attention and being near his people and is very friendly and affectionate. He’s the life of the party and is happy to share his love of life with anyone around! Sullivan gets along with everyone he meets, including other dogs, cats, and even chickens! He’s such a special boy and is going to make an amazing addition to the family that gives him a chance.” Click here to view more photos of Sullivan.
RADAR paid all of Sullivan’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $250.
