Who would intervene to save Geraldine? On October 6th, this two- to three-year-old Bully Breed mix was found as a stray and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Despite being a sweet girl, the combination of her breed mix and being heartworm positive greatly limited her chances of getting adopted or rescued. As the new year began, Geraldine found herself on the shelter’s urgent list.
On January 4th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania stepped forward to take Geraldine. However, help was needed to cover the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked if we could assist, and we agreed at once. She had her heartworm treatment done on January 22nd.
We were told this about Geraldine during her time at the shelter: “She is a super friendly, kissy, wiggly girl who can’t help but make you smile with how affectionate and cute she is! She has met a variety of dogs and has done well with all. Her tail is always wagging and she’s always ready to make friends. She’s best suited for a home with no kitties but would be up for a friendly resident dog who is looking for a buddy. Geraldine is always ready for some kisses and snuggles, and is such a happy girl to be around. She will love you with her whole heart and be a loyal, faithful, fun companion!” To see more photos of Geraldine, click here.
RADAR paid all $274 of the heartworm treatment costs for Geraldine.
