For Evette, a four- to five-year old German Shepherd mix, good news has been a long time in coming. Brought in as a stray by a good Samaritan to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on September 24th, this friendly girl not only had a torn ACL, but she was heartworm positive. Both issues put the brakes on this otherwise very adoptable girl to be adopted or rescued.
On February 3rd, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help for Evette. Peppertree Rescue in New York wanted to take Evette. The rescue had a plan in place for her ACL surgery, but needed help with her heartworm treatment costs. We said we would assist, and Evette completed her heartworm treatment on February 19th. She is expected to have her ACL surgery once she is fully recovered from her heartworm treatment.
“Evette is a sweet dog who loves attention,” we were told. “She’s great with other dogs. She’s a typical loyal and affectionate German Shepherd with her handler. She’s a polite, gentle-natured lady who is a great choice for folks of all ages from the very young to older folks.” Click here to view more photos of Evette.
RADAR paid all of Evette’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $441.
