More than an old sweet song will keep Georgia on your mind! This gorgeous, well-mannered one to two-year-old Shepherd mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 18th as a stray. While she was shy at first, it didn’t take long for her graceful and confident personality to shine through and impress folks at the shelter. Unfortunately, Georgia tested positive for heartworms. Ending up on the urgent list, Georgia needed help soon to find her forever home.
On June 9th, To Love A Canine Rescue in Southeast Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Georgia, but with the usual caveat that her heartworm treatment would need to be done first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for financial assistance, and we agreed. Georgia received her heartworm treatment on June 19th.
“Georgia is a happy, polite and pleasant lady,” we were told. “With some patience, routine and a home stocked with another pet or two to show her the ropes, she will surely blossom into an incredible companion pet. She just needs that one person to believe in her and give her that chance. Georgia is as sweet as they come!” To see more photos of Georgia, click here.
RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Georgia.
UPDATE! All funds for Georgia have been raised! Thank you!
