Alice said this in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: “It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.” For this Alice, a two-and-a-half-year-old Lab mix, things just weren’t making sense–and they seemed to be falling apart. She arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 22nd with her nine very young pups. One by one, each of them passed away, even though shelter volunteers did everything they could to help. Alone and without a place to call home, Alice was depressed in the shelter. To top it all off, Alice was heartworm positive, which would make her chances of being saved that much smaller.
On June 3rd, Kim Frigault with Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont contacted RADAR for assistance with Alice. If we could provide funding for her heartworm treatment, the rescue would take her. We agreed, and Alice made her way to Vermont on June 23rd. She had her heartworm treatment done on July 19th.
“Alice now knows the feeling of being wanted, loved and is enjoying life,” Kim told us. “We are excited to have been able to offer her this bridge and find her a lifelong family where she will be cherished forever! Thank you for what you do. So many dogs have a life because of RADAR.” To see more photos of Alice, click here.
RADAR paid all $250 of the heartworm treatment costs for Alice.
