While this Bronte’s story is not a literary masterpiece like those of her 19th-century namesake authors, her story is still compelling. Bronte is a three-year-old Labrador Retriever-Carolina Dog mix. She arrived as a stray on July 10th at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Despite being described as a really lovely girl, Bronte had no rescue or adopter interest. It didn’t help that she was heartworm positive. By late August, Bronte was on the shelter’s “Put To Sleep” list.
To help save Bronte, RADAR provided an offer to assist with her heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. Fortunately, One Life to Live Pet Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania spoke up for her in time to save her life. Bronte had her heartworm treatments done on September 11th and October 14th.
We were told this about Bronte: “She’s super happy to simply head out for a walk, nuzzle up against another dog or give a new human friend a gentle face kiss. She’s toned and more athletic in her frame. She seems to smile a lot and have a fun. She has a warm and friendly aura about her. Bronte even has an infectious bounce in her step. She’s something of a wiggly hula dancer in her kennel!” To see more photos of Bronte, click here.
RADAR paid $325 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Bronte.
