You’ll marvel at our superhero dog, Captain America! On May 24th, Captain America was picked up by animal control as a stray and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. He’s a three to five-year-old Border Collie-Bully Breed mix. Testing heartworm positive meant that rescues and adopters passed him by. On July 28th, Captain America was placed on the shelter’s “Put to Sleep” list for August 3rd.
In an effort to save this at-risk dog, on July 28th RADAR provided an offer to cover Captain America’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take him. A few days later, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania agreed to take Captain America! He received his heartworm treatment on August 23rd.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, shared this with us about Captain America: “He is an all-around nice guy. Everyone who meets him talks about what a good boy he is. He would be a perfect companion for someone who wants to be able to take their dog along on outings as he is very polite and well-behaved. He is quietly affectionate. His eyes light up and his tail wags when he sees a friend approaching. He gets long well with other dogs, not as a super-playful friend, but more as an easy-going pal.” To see more photos of Captain America, click here.
RADAR paid all $298 of the heartworm treatment costs for Captain America.
