One of the meanings of Bethany, a town near Jerusalem, is poor-house. And this Bethany, a one- to two-year-old sweet German Shepherd, found herself in a poor-house of sorts. A stray, she arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on February 19th. Shy at first, this pretty girl soon gained confidence. She was ready for a good home but testing positive for heartworms meant that her chances of a good home were low.
On March 4th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society, asked that we help Bethany. Long Trail Canine Rescue in Vermont wanted to rescue Bethany but needed assistance with heartworm treatment costs. We said we would help and Bethany finished her heartworm treatment on April 2nd.
“Bethany is now ready for her forever home,” we were told. “She is a well-mannered, easy leash walker who loves getting attention from humans and is excellent with other dogs. Bethany is calm and confident and would be in her element in a home with dogs and certainly kids.” To see more photos of Bethany, click here.
RADAR paid all of Bethany’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $272.
