The Dutch meaning of the name Falco means to shimmer or shine, which this Falco, a one- to two-year-old Husky Mix, does effortlessly! This icy-blue-eyed boy was picked up as a stray by animal control and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina March 7th. Being a stray, not much was known about Falco’s past, but one thing was for sure: he was heartworm positive, which lessened his chances of being rescued or adopted.
On May 23rd, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR to see if we could help with the cost of Falco’s heartworm treatment. Furever Friends in New York was interested in taking him if he first had his heartworm treatment done. We agreed to assist, and he got his treatment on June 4th!
Falco’s got more than just his piercing blue stare to impress you. Like most Huskies, he’s friendly and intelligent, and can also be a little bit on the independent side. “Falco will make an excellent pet for the family or person who can meet his needs,” we were told. “He’s ready to find his forever home and settle down as a beloved family member and repay your love with years of loyalty and devotion.” To see more photos of Falco, click here.
RADAR paid all $290 of the heartworm treatment costs for Falco.
