The role of RADAR seemed to be tailor-made for Taylor! This two to three-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix arrived as a stray at the Clarendon County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on September 16th. “Taylor is not only handsome, but he is very sweet and very friendly!” the shelter reported. “This poor boy has had a rough start to life; he has a mass on his back left leg. Taylor is such an awesome boy, but was neglected.” To add to his woes, Taylor also tested heartworm positive.
With Taylor facing an imminent euthanasia date, a Code Red alert was issued on September 23rd. In response to a request for RADAR’s help, we provided an offer to assist Taylor to encourage a rescue to take him. On September 25th, Where Hope Lives Animal Rescue in New York agreed to take Taylor! He was safely out of the shelter on September 28th, and off to his temporary foster home. The surgery to remove the mass on Taylor’s leg took place on October 1st. He then received his heartworm treatment on October 29th.
“Taylor is a sweet, lovable boy,” the rescue told us. “He’s very mellow gets along great with other dogs and really enjoys playing with them. He will make a great family dog. We wanted to give Taylor a second chance at a happily ever after!” To see more photos of Taylor, click here.
RADAR paid all of Taylor’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $269.
