What this dog needed was a rescue so that a volunteer transporter could truly be “Driving Miss Daisy!” This two to three-year-old Lab-Border Collie mix arrived as a stray at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia on April 23rd. With no interest and little time to spare, Daisy was given a deadline of May 9th to be adopted or taken by a rescue, otherwise she would be euthanized on May 10th.
The folks with the Mercer County Volunteers shared the word about Daisy’s fate (she was known as Missy at the shelter). RADAR made an assistance offer for Daisy as an incentive for rescue to pull her. On May 9th, and just in the knick of time, Harley’s Mission of Hope German Shepherd and Extra Large Breed Rescue in Buffalo, New York, agreed to take Daisy!
Daisy had her initial vetting and spaying done on May 17th. Unfortunately, she tested heartworm positive. The news was devastating for the rescue, which just had to deal with multiple large and unexpected vet bills. The rescue announced that it had to cease intake. To help, RADAR agreed to extend its assistance to cover Daisy’s heartworm treatment costs. After recovering from a severe infection from her spaying incision, Daisy had her heartworm treatment done on June 20th. Click here to see more photos of Daisy.
RADAR paid Daisy’s initial vetting costs of $144 and her heartworm treatment costs of $350, for a total of $494.
