Gavin was havin’ a hard time finding a place to call home in January, and he eventually ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 31st when he was brought in by animal control. This two- to three-year-old Hound mix got some more bad news when he tested heartworm positive, which hindered his chances of being rescued or adopted.
Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in pulling Gavin from the shelter if his heartworm treatment costs were taken care of. So, on March 12th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to RADAR to ask for our assistance. We agreed to help, and Gavin got his treatment on March 26th.
“This tri-colored fellow with his endless legs and steadily-wagging tail is not much in a rush except to find his new person,” the shelter told us. “Gavin is a very approachable, happy sort in search of someone who might wish to go and do, but also relax and enjoy each other’s company at day’s end.” To see more photos of Gavin, click here.
RADAR paid all of Gavin’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $321.
