When the request was made for RADAR’s help with Edith’s cherry eye surgery costs, we took a vote and all in favor (which was everyone) said “Eye!” Edith, a one-year-old Hound mix, had the dubious distinction of being the last intake of 2017 at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina, where she arrived as a stray late on December 30th. Although she did not have heartworms, she did have a case of cherry eye in her right eye.
Three weeks passed and there was not a single inquiry about Edith. On January 22nd, Caring for Creatures in Virginia offered to take Edith if her cherry eye surgery costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked for our help. We agreed and Edith had her cherry eye surgery done on January 31st.
“I think she’s the sweetest thing ever!” Susan told us. This was the information provided to us about Edith during her stay at the shelter: “Sweet and mild-mannered, little Edith stayed huddled up with Lucy, her kennel mate, as they both tried to stay warm during a cold spell. She was a little scared, but got along great with Lucy. She’s a friendly girl!” Click here to view more photos of Edith.
RADAR paid all of Edith’s cherry eye surgery costs, which totaled $190.

UPDATE! Edith has been adopted! We were told this by her rescue, “she went home with Lisa and Jason who report that she’s super sweet and loves to walk, eat and love. Looks like she’s already quite smitten with Lisa!”
