Life seemed to have turned snarly on Carly, a three- to four-year-old Labrador Retriever-Rottweiler mix. Her owners were no longer able to care for her, so they surrendered her to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 20th. Her owners told the shelter that Carly was a very nice dog, house-trained and good with children. What they neglected to mention was that they had not given Carly a heartworm preventive. Not surprisingly, Carly tested heartworm positive. Carly landed on the shelter’s urgent list, as her heartworm status discouraged adopter and rescue interest.
Peppertree Rescue in New York expressed interest in taking Carly from the shelter, but they needed help with the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society, reached out to RADAR on July 29th for help. With a rescue and our commitment to cover Carly’s heartworm costs, she was safe and off the urgent list! She completed her heartworm treatment on August 13th.
Carly is a big girl graced with a big, loving heart—and now heartworm free! She gets along well with other dogs, both male and female. Carly is a somewhat reserved girl. At the shelter, she greatly enjoyed being taken into the exercise pen with volunteers to spend time meeting other friends, getting walked and played with. This stunning lady is easy to leash and well-mannered on her walks. Carly is happy and friendly. and very much enjoys the company of humans. Consider this wonderful girl if you are looking for a dog with a heart of gold who will be a loving, loyal companion for many years to come! To see more photos of Carly, click here.
RADAR paid all $371 of the heartworm treatment costs for Carly.
