What do you call a sofa or bed that Fern uses? Yes, Ferniture! A three to five-year-old Redbone Coonhound, Fern was found as a stray when she showed up on a shelter volunteer’s porch on March 22nd! Fern was taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina, where she tested heartworm positive. That meant it would be much more difficult to find an adopter or rescue for Fern.

On April 20th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania considered taking Fern if her heartworm treatment costs could be provided. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wasted no time in seeking our help. We agreed to cover Fern’s heartworm treatment costs, and the deal was done! She had her heartworm treatment on May 3rd.

“Long and leggy, and a redhead to boot, oh my!” Susan said. “Standing tall and proud and sporting zero body fat, Fern is a feast for the eyes. This gentle-natured, mellow gal is poised and so very appealing. Softly nuzzling with humans, she’s a happy, friendly lady who prides herself on being doting and attentive. She is lovely with other dogs. Fern is one elegant, graceful lady! ” Click here to view more photos of Fern.

RADAR paid all of Fern’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $275.

UPDATE! Fern has been adopted!
