We’d be lion if we told you that this Tiger was a cat and not a dog! Tiger is a stunning two to three-year-old Mountain Cur mix who arrived at the Clarendon County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on April 23rd. Sadly, Tiger’s owner had issues and could no longer care for her, so Tiger was surrendered to the shelter. With the shelter overcrowded, Tiger had only until May 5th to be rescued or adopted. If not, she would be euthanized.
It seemed like wonderful news when an approved adopter agreed to take Tiger. Then at the last minute, the adoption fell through and Tiger’s time was up. Animal advocate Susan Jones jumped right in to save Tiger. To better facilitate an adoption or rescue for Tiger, she paid to have a heartworm test done. Unfortunately, Tiger tested heartworm positive. But that didn’t stop Susan! She managed to find a rescue, Virginia Paws for Pits, willing to take Tiger if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan reached out to us for help, and we agreed to assist. Tiger was safely out of the shelter on May 12th.
Tiger received her heartworm treatment on May 14th. Virginia Paws for Pits shared this with us about Tiger: “She is flourishing in her foster home and has proven to be an all around fantastic dog. Thanks so much to RADAR and its supporters for helping us get this sweet girl healthy and one step closer to putting all this behind her!” To see more photos of Tiger, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards Tiger’s heartworm treatment costs.

UPDATE! Tiger has been adopted! Her foster family fell in love with her and adopted!
