Collette is a brindled beauty! This two to three-year-old Mountain Cur-American Pit Bull mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on February 16th. Not only did Collette face the obstacle of being part Pit Bull, but she was also heartworm positive. Saving Collette would require both a willing rescue and a source of funding.
Thanks to the relentless networking efforts of the volunteers with the Darlington County Humane Society, a rescue was found for Collette! The Annapolis Dog Rescue in Maryland offered to take Collette, but only if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered.
RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, Susan Blakeney, again reached out for our assistance. While their donors could cover Collette’s routine vetting costs, RADAR’s help was needed for her heartworm treatment. We agreed to cover the cost of Collette’s heartworm treatment, which was done on March 15th. Susan had this to tell us about Collette: “She’s in a perpetual state of happy, with a wagging tail and smiling face! Collette is fun and bubbly!” To view more photos of Collette, click here.
RADAR paid all of Collette’s $254 heartworm treatment bill.
