Fun fact time! Despite being the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick wasn’t Irish–he was born in Britain! This Patrick hasn’t achieved sainthood (yet), but he’s got a lot of wonderful qualities that would make him a great addition to any family. A one-year-old Shepherd-Lab mix, this guy was brought in as a stray to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina just four days after St. Patrick’s Day on March 21st. Unfortunately, he was heartworm positive.
On April 15th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Patrick if his heartworm treatment could be taken care of. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wasted no time to see if we could assist with the cost. We agreed, and he was safe! He got his treatment on April 23rd.
We learned from folks at the shelter that Patrick’s breed characteristics as a Shepherd were very obvious: he wanted to walk by his person and observe his surroundings. He’s also very playful and sweet, and he enjoys romping and running around! Click here to view more photos of Patrick.
RADAR paid all of Patrick’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $255.
Please help us cover our costs of helping Patrick by contributing to his Fund today!
