Remember Scout, the super sweet dog who was in danger in the crowded shelter Bradford county? Scout was so friendly he was used as the ‘dog tester’ in the shelter. Unfortunately, he was heartworm positive, and week after week he waited in the shelter until his time grew short and he was on the danger list.

Fortunately, Scout had a fan club networking him, including: Tracy DelloRusso Collins, Kelly Thomas, Rene Richmond and Lynda Gridley. Danielle Kysela offered to foster him, and one of our FUR adopters, Rachel Kor Long, went to pick him up from the shelter and give him his freedom ride.

As usual, we had unexpected bumps along the way. Scout had a UTI, and the Predinose for his heartworm pretreatment complicated that. He had multiple vet visits before we got everything under control, with help from Danielle, Valerie Losego and Mercia Noble. Rounding out the team, Heather Holt temp fostered Scout when Danielle was out of town, and who introduced us to his adopter Cailyn.

Cailyn, who needed an Emotional Support Animal. She went through the process, got all the documentation, and got everything cleared with her landlord before starting the sleeover. Not surprisingly, Scout is a rock star, and he and Cailyn are doing great. We’re excited to announce that he’s adopted!

He’s halfway through his heartworm treatment, so Cailyn will get him back to Ponte Vedra Animal Hospital to complete it. As always, FUR covered 100% of the cost of his heart worm treatment. Thank you Danielle for fostering, Cailyn for adopting, and everyone who worked helped him along the way.
