When it came to saving this dog, it truly was a Domino effect! This two-year-old American Pit Bull mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on August 22nd! Without any rescue interest, Domino was one of many Pit Bulls scheduled to be euthanized in late September. Somehow Domino managed to get a reprieve. But not for long. Heartworm positive and with no one interested, Domino ran out of reprieves and was scheduled to be euthanized late in December.
As fate would have it, a temporary foster was found just in time to save Domino! Meanwhile, the volunteers with the Darlington County Humane Society continued to seek out a rescue to take him. In February, Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Domino, but only if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, asked for our assistance. We committed to cover the cost of Domino’s heartworm treatment, which took place on March 5th. Domino remains in his temporary foster home until his transport to the rescue in Pennsylvania. Domino’s temporary foster mom had this to share with us about him: “He is one of the best fosters I’ve ever had. Domino is super sweet and good with people of all ages. He has the cutest full body wiggle that goes off anytime you get near him!” Click here to view more photos of Domino.
RADAR paid all of Domino’s $292 heartworm treatment cost.
