The name Teegan means “special thing,” and that sure is the case with this Teegan. She was picked up as a stray by a concerned citizen and taken to the Aiken County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on January 22nd. Teegan (who was originally named Kady at the shelter) is a four-year-old Pit Bull mix. Sadly, she turned out to be heartworm positive. That meant that she could not be adopted, but could only be saved by a rescue.
Mary Lou Seymour with The Heart Beat Goes On program, which is designed to help save heartworm positive dogs at the Aiken shelter, began to get the word out about Teegan on February 1st. With time rapidly running out, Shelter Animals Advocates, the parent organization for The Heart Beat Goes On, decided to save Teegan, but only if funding could be found. Mary Lou reached out to RADAR on February 8th to see if we could help. We agreed and Teegan was safe!
Teegan had her heartworm treatment on February 17th. We were told that Teegan is a very special and super-nice girl. She wants to please, and has no issues. She does very well when touched, and seems to crave it. Teegan is very sweet and gentle. Click here to view more photos of Teegan.
RADAR paid $300 towards Teegan’s heartworm treatment costs.
