Fanny, Fanny, bo-banny – Banana-fana fo-anny – Fee-fi-mo-manny! Fanny is a three-year-old Bully mix who arrived at the Darlington County Animal Shelter on June 12th with her adorable wire-haired pup Fitz. Fanny was very skinny and the pair had to be quarantined for several months due to ringworm. If that wasn’t enough of a challenge, Fanny was up against a heartworm positive status and negative Bully breed stereotypes making her less attractive to possible adopters and rescues. Many rescues were interested in Fitz, but the staff at Darlington was hopeful that a rescue would be interested in the mother-son pair.

Their hope and patience paid off! On August 9th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR for assistance with Fanny’s heartworm treatment costs. The mother-son pair had a rescue offer from Out of the Pits Rescue in New York that was contingent upon Fanny having her heartworm treatment.  We agreed to help, enabling Fanny and Fitz to journey to New York to start their new lives together.

Fanny had her heartworm treatment on August 29th. She has enjoyed some long sought after love, attention and nourishment at the shelter, and the staff shared that Fanny is a super friendly and engaging girl who is wonderful with other dogs. She is always happy and sporting the classic Bully ear-to-ear grin! To see more photos of Fanny, click here.

RADAR paid all $249 of the heartworm treatment costs for Fanny.
