Traveller was doing just that, travelling, when he was picked as a stray and taken to the Chester County Animal Care & Control shelter in South Carolina on January 23rd. Since this approximately two-year-old Shepherd mix was very underweight, he was probably travelling around looking for food. While he now had food at the shelter, Traveller faced double trouble: he was heartworm positive and no one was interested in rescuing or adopting him.
As February turned to March, Traveller was placed on the “Last Call” list. Mary Anne Tolbert from the shelter contacted RADAR on March 2nd to see if we would assist with Traveller. On March 3rd we provided an offer of assistance for Traveller as an incentive for a rescue to take him.
On March 12th, the Humane Society of Lancaster, SC, agreed to take Traveller! He had his initial vetting and neutering done the very next day, and received his heartworm treatment on March 27th. RADAR covered all of those costs. Although Traveller was very shy when he first arrived at the shelter, he has come a long way and has made a remarkable turnaround.

RADAR has paid all of the initial vetting, neutering and heartworm treatment costs of $340 for Traveller.
