Dog saved from SC shelter moments before euthanasia needs heartworm treatment

An upstate dog is in need of heartworm treatment and needs help with finances, Facebook posted December 18.

Lucky is a 3-year-old pit bull who was rescued from Greenville County Animal Care Services just minutes before being euthanized. At that time, he was very emaciated and scared, and it's feared Lucky was also severely abused.

Lucky is now living up to his name since being in the care of his foster mom, Angel Dutton. Angel has gotten this sweet boy all fattened up and is spoiling him rotten until a loving forever home can be found.

The only problem is Lucky tested heartworm positive, and the treatment is expensive. For that reason, a donation webpage has been set up through YouCaring to raise the $450 needed to treat him.

For those of you who don't want to help using a fundraiser, you can contact Lucky's vet and make a payment by calling Wade Hampton Veterinary Clinic at (864)244-1658.

Angel says Lucky is an amazing dog who will make someone an equally amazing companion once the heartworm problem has been eliminated. Please help if you can, and share Lucky's story.
