You won’t need a little birdie to tell you just how adorable Birdie is! This sweet one- to two-year-old Lab mix ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on October 29th when she was brought in as a stray by animal control. Despite her sweet smile and friendly character, Birdie didn’t get any interest at the shelter, as she was one of many black dogs there. She also had another big problem that was holding her back from being rescued or adopted: she was heartworm positive.
On December 2nd, House of Hope Animal Rescue in Maryland expressed interest in taking Birdie. The only thing needed was funding for her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately sought our assistance. We agreed to help, and she was safe! She received her heartworm treatment on December 11th.
We were told this about Birdie: “She’s a sleek velvet snuggle bug! Birdie is such a sweet girl. She’s friendly and affectionate. Birdie knows her new family is right around the corner eagerly waiting to take her home. In the market for a well-balanced Black Lab? Well, Birdie could be just what you need!” Click here to view more photos of Birdie.
RADAR paid all of Birdie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $224.
UPDATE! All funds for Birdie have been raised! Thank you!
