So that to a rescue she could go, Ginger needed some dough. That is, the money kind of dough; otherwise, we could have called her Gingerbread! On January 29th, Animal Control brought her to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. One to two years old and a Bully Breed mix, this was the fourth time Ginger was picked up running loose by animal control, and this time her owner didn’t want her back. As if being a Bully Breed blend wasn’t already limiting her rescue chances, she also tested positive for heartworms.
After waiting patiently at the shelter for over three months, Ginger finally garnished a rescue’s interest on May 9th. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania would take her if the costs of her heartworm treatment could be provided. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, sought out our assistance. We agreed and Ginger received her heartworm treatment on June 6th.
We were told this about Ginger during one of her times out of her kennel at the shelter: “She is a quiet gal, and friends with everyone. Today she had the chance to come out of her kennel. She had a blast! She immediately wanted to play with each dog she met! Every time I sat down, this girl tried to get in my lap! She is a very well-behaved, gentle and polite girl.” Click here to view more photos of Ginger.
RADAR paid all of Ginger’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $325.
