Ferrari, a two- to three-year-old Lab mix, is just as stylish and classy as her name suggests. She was brought into the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 11th by her previous owner, who claimed they could no longer take care of her. Ferrari soon ended up on the shelter’s urgent list, and sadly stayed there for almost four weeks. She had some sores on her hip area that needed attention, and much worse, she was heartworm positive.
One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania was interested in pulling Ferrari from the shelter, provided that her heartworm treatment was taken care of. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted us on September 28th to see if we could help. We agreed to assist, and Ferrari was safe! She got her treatment on October 16th.
Folks at the shelter said this about Ferrari: “This mid-sized lady was fast to snuggle up with her new human friend and showed a moderate amount of interest in politely meeting the other four-legged doggies on our field trip in front of the shelter. We enjoyed watching her work her way through a short-lived bout of ‘zoomies’ in the exercise area and then settling down for some fast pictures. Never jumpy or in your face, Ferrari is respectful of other’s space and would enjoy taking on a pet role which included the care of kids.” Click here to view more photos of Ferrari.
RADAR paid all of Ferrari’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $272.
