Doc

The Doc-tor is in! Doc, a two to three-year-old Hound mix, is sure to cure any ailments you might have with his fun-loving attitude and his endless entertaining. He ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 4th when he was turned in as a stray. Doc did well at the shelter, making new friends with ease thanks to his friendly demeanor. But despite his lovable, carefree attitude, he was facing some problematic health issues. Doc was very skinny, and he was heartworm positive.

On July 5th, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, requested our help for Doc. He was about to go on the shelter’s urgent list when when One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania spoke up for him, but only if his heartworm treatment could be provided. We agreed to assist, and Doc was safe! He received his treatment on July 10th.

We were told this about Doc: “He is a free spirit, who has not a care in the world! This tail wagging, hip-swiveling fellow is fun and engaging, self-entertaining and a hoot to be around. He’s inquisitive and always ready to go and do. Doc has never met a stranger and no matter where he is, he makes it a fun, happy place!” To see more photos of Doc, click here.

RADAR paid all $272 of the heartworm treatment costs for Doc.

UPDATE! All funds for Doc have been raised! Thank you!

      Hi Brenda! I believe that Doc is still in SC. He might be on the next transport to PA, probably next weekend. Not sure about cats… I’d recommend contacting his rescue, One Life to Live in PA; their email address is listed at the end of Doc’s story. They might know about cats, and they can tell you if he has any adopters lined up for him after he arrives in PA. Thanks!
