As you will soon learn, a better name for Cyrus might have been Houdini! This approximately three-year-old Lab mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 27th. Cyrus tested heartworm positive. After being lucky enough to eventually get rescue interest, he was placed in a temporary foster home, from which he promptly escaped!
On June 26th, a three-year-old-Lab mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter, and was given the name Tony. As it turns out, Tony was really the long-lost Cyrus! The New England Lab Rescue in Maine was interested in taking Cyrus if they could get some help with his heartworm treatment costs. The rescue could only commit to cover $150 for his treatment.
RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, Susan Blakeney, asked for RADAR’s help, and we agreed to cover the costs in excess of $150. Cyrus had his heartworm treatment done on July 9th. Susan shared this with us about Cyrus: “He’s very low key and a shyer dog. Cyrus is sweet and gentle, and incredibly handsome!” To view more photos of Cyrus, click here.
RADAR paid $189 towards the $339 heartworm treatment costs for Cyrus. (The rescue paid the other $150.)
