“Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Built For Two)” is a popular, light-hearted song written in 1892. Daisy, a black Labrador Retriever mix, was not so light-hearted when she was dropped into the outdoor drop-off pen at the Mary Ann Morris Animal Society (MAMAS) shelter in Bamberg County in South Carolina on January 28th, most likely after law enforcement picked up this two-and-a-half-year-old gal as a stray. Daisy was sweet and polite and friendly, but her heart was heavy; heavy with the burden of heartworms that would kill her unless treated.
On February 4th, Ruthie Rish with MAMAS contacted RADAR. If Daisy’s heartworm treatment costs were covered, Laura’s Hope Rescue in Pennsylvania would take her. “Daisy is a super-sweet young girl,” Ruthie said, “with her whole life ahead of her.” We agreed to help, and on February 20th and 21st Daisy had her heartworm medical treatment.
Once in Pennsylvania, Daisy’s great personality and good looks attracted many interested would-be adopters. This girl gets along with dog and cats, and has a sweet, submissive manner. Daisy was soon adopted and renamed Jules! To see more photos of Daisy, click here.
RADAR paid all $180 of the heartworm treatment costs for Daisy.
UPDATE! Daisy has been adopted! Her new name is Jules!
