Clementine hoped to be someone’s “Darling Clementine.” A one-year-old Bully Breed mix, she came in as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on February 11th. A gentle hugger, her sweetness stood out at the shelter. She had been neglected in the past, as she tested heartworm positive at a young age. That meant her previous owner had not given her heartworm preventative and it also meant that her chances of adoption or rescue diminished. The combination of a disparaged breed and the high cost of treating heartworms were two obstacles to Clementine’s chances.
Happily, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in Clementine if her heartworms could be treated. And so Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked RADAR for help with Clementine’s treatment costs on March 15th. We could not turn down such a sweet clementine! She completed her heartworm medical treatment on March 17th.
“Clementine would be great with kids as she jumps up softly and loves hugs and waits for your attention,” Susan and volunteers at the shelter shared with us. “She enjoys running, so she would like hiking and walks well on a leash. An excellent car rider, she makes a good traveling companion. She also loves snuggling on the couch. Clementine has a wonderful combination of medium energy, loving and gentleness in her character.” Be sure to view more photos in Clementine’s gallery.
RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Clementine.
