A black dog is often overlooked in a crowded shelter. In this case, one might ask, is there a Claire there? Yes, and we’re here to share Claire! This three to four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix was picked up by animal control on January 22nd and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Bad enough to be an overlooked black dog in an overcrowded rural shelter, but even worse, Claire was also heartworm positive. Claire was among the dogs included on the shelter’s “put to sleep” list for March 18th.
On March 7h, RADAR provided an offer to cover Claire’s heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take her. And it worked! On March 11th, Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania committed to take Claire. She received her heartworm treatment on March 31st.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, told us this about Claire: “She has enough shimmer and sparkle in her personality to match her polka-dot bandana! She loves to play and really thought that a little dog they brought out with her for a walk was the greatest toy ever! She’s a bouncy and fun lady.” To see more photos of Claire, click here.
RADAR paid all of Claire’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $252.
