There’s the famous Duke of Wellington, but now RADAR introduces the Duke of Darlington! This noble canine, a four to five-year-old Carolina Dog-Feist mix, was brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 3rd by animal control. As just another brown dog in this overcrowded rural shelter, Duke was already at risk, but the fact that he was heartworm positive put his life in grave danger. Sure enough, on April 8th he was placed on the shelter’s euthanasia list for April 15th.
On April 8th RADAR provided an offer to cover his heartworm treatment costs as an incentive for a rescue to take Duke. At the last minute a potential adopter materialized. However, a week later Duke’s adoption fell through. Luckily, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, told us that Tiny Miracles Farm Rescue in Pennsylvania had agreed to take Duke with RADAR’s help! He had his heartworm treatment done on May 5th.
We were told that Duke is ready to find a family and live his life to the fullest. Duke loves all of his subjects: human, canine or feline. He believes in miracles large and small; after all, his life was saved by Tiny Miracles Farm Rescue! To view more photos of Duke, click here.
RADAR paid all $218 for Duke’s heartworm treatment costs.
