Cassie is quite the lassie! No, she isn’t a Collie but a Labrador Retriever mix with a sweet, shy smile. This four- to five-year-old girl was brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 4th by a community member who had kept her for a few months. She tested heartworm positive and then waited for four months in the shelter, hoping for rescue interest, as treating heartworms is an expensive process.

On September 9th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania came forward to help Cassie. The rescue wanted to find Cassie a forever home but first, she would need her heartworms treated. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for help. We agreed to cover the expense of her heartworm treatment costs. Cassie completed her treatment on September 24th.

“Cassie is very friendly and loving,” we were told. “She is a little shy with strangers at first but is fine with being petted by them and has done well with both children and adults. She has a low-to-medium energy level and is easily handled. One look into her big, brown eyes and you may find yourself taken with classy Cassie!” To see more photos of Cassie, click here.

RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Cassie.
