Ah, the allure of Alora! This one to two-year-old Hound mix was not being cared for and the summer heat was taking its toll on Alora. When animal control was called on July 28th, her owners surrendered Alora and she was taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Testing heartworm positive greatly reduced her chances of getting adopted or rescued.
After sitting at the shelter for nearly two months, One Life to Live Pet Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Alora. There was just one hitch: her heartworm treatment costs would need to be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our help We agreed to cover the costs, which secured Alora’s rescue! She had her heartworm treatment on October 4th.
“Alora is super sweet,” Susan told us. “She will come running and lay right on your feet if she can get the chance! She is very friendly. Alora loves to play ball and get belly rubs!” Click here to view more photos of Alora.
RADAR paid all of Alora’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $218.
UPDATE! All funds for Alora have been raised! Thank you!
