All hail Gail! A three- to four-year-old Lab mix, this gorgeous girl ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 11th. She was brought in by animal control with three other dogs, after being found as strays. Gail was a little bit thin upon her arrival at the shelter. But that issue was nothing compared to the fact that she was heartworm positive, which led to her being placed on the shelter’s urgent list in early February.
On February 12th, Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Gail. The only obstacle was the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately sought our help, and we agreed at once. Gail received her heartworm treatment on February 26th.
“Gail has a wonderful even temperament,” the shelter reported. “She’s not too crazy, not too mellow, but just a nice middle of the road kind of girl. The staff says she is very sweet, and she has met other dogs with a wagging tail and calm interest. She’s ready to find a nice home with a warm bed, good food, and a loving family to call her own!.” To see more photos of Gail, click here.
RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Gail.
