In response to RADAR’s pleas, our donors saved Eloise! This one to two-year-old Hound-Collie mix was brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina by animal control on August 27th. Eloise lingered at the shelter, passed over by rescues because she was heartworm positive. Prior to RADAR’s heartworm treatment assistance for Darlington dogs, many heartworm positive dogs, like Eloise, were immediately euthanized.
The volunteers with the Darlington County Humane Society won half the battle to save Eloise when they found a rescue to take her. Caring for Creatures in Virginia wanted to take Eloise but had no funds for her heartworm treatment costs. On September 23rd, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, turned to us for urgent help. Eloise could get her heartworm treatment done the next day. We posted an appeal, and in just a few hours, all the needed funds were raised!
Eloise had her heartworm treatment done of September 24th. Susan had this to tell us about Eloise: “She’s super sweet, with a happy face. She’s always ready to interact, play and give you a kiss, and quite possibly all at the same time! Eloise has a wonderful, gentle disposition and is always wagging her tail!” Click here to view more photos of Eloise.
RADAR paid all $130 of the heartworm treatment costs for Eloise.
UPDATE! All funds for Eloise have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Eloise has been renamed by her rescue. Her new name is Lizzie!
UPDATE! Lizzie has been adopted!
