Things might go better with Coke, but they were not going well for this Cola! Approximately five years old and a Hound mix, Cola had been waiting a very long time for rescue since her owner surrendered her to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on July 12th. She had given birth to multiple litters. Sadly with her last litter, all the pups all died.
Cola originally had a rescue offer back in August, but the rescue ultimately decided not to rescue her when they learned she had suspected growths in her mammary track. She later had the growths removed and the biopsy showed they were benign. She had been sitting at the shelter ever since then with no interest. Part of the problem was that Cola was heartworm positive.
On December 19th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take Cola if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help, noting, “She has been sitting in a kennel for so very long.” We agreed at once and Cola safe!
Cola received her heartworm treatment on January 23rd. We were told, “Cola is a very sweet girl who will melt your heart with her smile! She plays nicely with other dogs and doesn’t mind the kitties either!” Click here to view more photos of Cola.
RADAR paid all of Cola’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $293.
UPDATE! All funds for Cola have been raised! Thank you!
