The name Adaire is either a Gaelic name meaning ‘oak grove’ or an Old German name “ead gar” meaning ‘wealthy spear.’ This Adaire is neither an oak tree nor a spear, and certainly not wealthy, but she is a Border Collie mix and about one-and-a-half years old. She was originally pulled from a high-kill shelter in Georgia by an independent rescuer. The rescuer asked the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County South Carolina if they could take Adaire. MAMAS accepted Adaire on April 12th. Unfortunately, this girl tested heartworm positive. She needed treatment before she could be accepted by a rescue.
The Blue Chip Farm Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in Adaire if she could first get her heartworms treated. Ruthie Rish with MAMAS reached out to RADAR on April 27th for assistance. We agreed to help Adaire, and she had her heartworm treatment on April 29th and 30th.
“Adaire has a pretty coat as soft as rabbit’s fur,” we were told, “and she will lie down for belly rubs and snuggles. She is a submissive girl who is friendly and sweet. She wants to be friends with everyone, and after meeting her, everyone wants to be friends with her!” Click here to view more photos of Adaire.
RADAR paid all of Adaire’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $220.
