Five-year-old Daisy lived her entire life in a 6′ x 6′ kennel. When her owner lost his job and was unable to feed her, he surrendered her to the Orangeburg County Animal Shelter in South Carolina on July 25th. Daisy, a German Shorthaired Pointer mix, suddenly found herself in a kill shelter. She was emaciated and had heartworms. Being a large, black dog with heartworms was a triple whammy for Daisy.
Maggi Berwind-Dart with Black Dog Rescues in Massachusetts was interested in pulling Daisy, but needed help with the heartworm treatment costs. A shelter volunteer told her about RADAR, and she reached out to us on August 29th. We agreed to assist, which finally gave Daisy a much-needed second chance and a ticket out of the shelter! She received her heartworm treatment on September 24th.
“Daisy is truly an amazing dog!” Maggi told us. “She is super sweet, and loves everyone and every dog she meets and just wants to be loved on. She’s an older dog, so you would think she would be calm, but as a German Shorthaired Pointer mix, she stays much more hyper and excited! She came into the shelter shy and quiet, and is now a fun-loving dog!” To see more photos of Daisy, click here.
RADAR paid $300 toward Daisy’s heartworm treatment costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Daisy have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! RADAR also assisted with the heartworm treatment costs for Daisy’s two-year-old daughter, Lola, which enabled the Black Dog Rescues to take her as well!
