Hi, I’m Dana, a three-year-old Hound mix who ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on June 25th. I had been picked up as a stray when I was found wandering the streets looking for a good place to call home. The shelter was a good temporary home, but I knew that I couldn’t stay there forever. I waited patiently for someone to adopt me, but months passed with no such luck. I think the biggest thing holding me back was that I tested heartworm positive.
Finally, there was some good news! Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in pulling me from the shelter. They just needed help with my costly heartworm treatment first. So on August 31st, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted RADAR to see if they could help. Thanks to their generous donors, they agreed, and I was safe! I completed my treatment on October 29th.
Folks at the shelter described me as being sweet, social and playful, and that I am a joy to be around. They even said this: “She could possibly charge folks to hang out with her as she is such a smile-maker!” I love meeting new friends, including people, children and other dogs. I love walks, and I am up for any kind of adventure or outing that might be in store for me! Click here to view more photos of me!
RADAR paid all of Dana’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $290.
