Who doesn’t need some sunshine in their lives? Sunshine, a two-and-a-half-year-old golden Labrador Retriever mix, may have been asking the same question to herself when she arrived at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in South Carolina on May 27th. She was brought in as a stray by a local resident, but no one claimed this dog with a sunny disposition. Her heartworm positive status seemed to cloud over a possible adoption for this very adoptable dog.
On June 7th, Ruthie Rish of MAMAS reached out to RADAR. Sunshine had adoption interest if her heartworms were treated. Could we help? We committed to Sunshine and she had her back-to-back heartworm treatments on June 8th and 9th.
“Sunshine is very befitting of her name,” Ruthie told us. “She is all smiles and light and love and happiness. She is up for any adventure and promises to make a future family very happy.” Ellen, on of Sunshine’s transporters said that she was an “absolutely beautiful, sweet, happy, precious dog!” Be sure to view more photos in Sunshine’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $270 of the heartworm treatment costs for Sunshine.
UPDATE! Sunshine has been adopted!
