Carmen is a charmin’ gal! This one- to two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix was found along a road and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 30th. This sweet and attractive dog had so much going for her: youth, personality and a medium-sized frame at 39 pounds. But she had one big hindrance to her suitability as an adoptee or rescue dog: she was heartworm positive.
Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in rescuing Carmen if her heartworm treatment costs were taken care of. On February 13th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted RADAR to ask for our help. We agreed, and on March 5th, Carmen completed her heartworm treatment.
We were told this about Carmen from her time at the shelter: “She got along well with her kennel mate and walks well on a leash. She loves people and is not interested in cats at all. Carmen met both female and male dogs and it went very well. She also has done well with children. Carmen has low to medium energy and is a mild-mannered gal.” To see more photos of Carmen, click here.
RADAR paid all $228 of the heartworm treatment costs for Carmen.
