While Cordelia was King Lear’s daughter, there’s nothing to be “leery” about with this Cordelia! A one to two-year-old Mountain Cur mix, Cordelia was picked up by animal control. She arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 8th. Cordelia was an immediate staff favorite since she was terribly charming during the whole intake process! But all of that charm didn’t seem to help her attract any adopter or rescue interest. Not helping matters was the fact that she was heartworm positive.
With the shelter filled beyond capacity, the first week of August an urgent plea went out to get dogs rescued to avoid having to euthanize them. On August 9th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take Cordelia, but only if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, immediately asked for our help. We agreed and Cordelia was safe! She had her heartworm treatment done on August 27th.
“Dogs like Cordelia are few and far between,” Susan told us. “She is so calm and sweet that you feel at peace when you are in her presence. Cordelia is a happy and polite mid-sized lady who would make a great addition to most any family. Her constantly wagging tail is a reminder of her cheerful personality. Cordelia is a gentle soul who mixes easily with other dogs (even cats). She shared a kennel with another RADAR dog, Dean. She’s just an amazing girl with a windshield-wiper tail!” Click here to view more photos of Cordelia.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Cordelia, which totaled $206.
