Tinkerbell, a three-year-old brindle Bully Breed mix, would need faith and trust (and a little pixie dust) to fly away from her past and into a new life. Tinkerbell ended up at the Hampton County Animal Shelter in South Carolina as a stray on June 15th with a serious problem. She was heartworm positive, which meant that it would be even more difficult for her to be rescued or adopted.

On July 5th, Mary Lou Seymour of Shelter Animals Advocates in South Carolina and its HeartBeat Goes On program sought our help with Tinkerbell. Shelter Animals Advocates would take her, but funding would be needed for her heartworm treatment. We agreed to assist. Her heartworm treatment took place on July 19th and 20th.

“I love her!” December Clark, Mary Lou’s partner with Shelter Animals Advocates and its HeartBeat Goes On program told us. “She’s gentle and walks calmly. She has an alert, happy personality. She makes you feel good! She’s super connected. Her ears do me in!” To see more photos of Tinkerbell, click here.

RADAR paid all of Tinkerbell’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $340.
