When someone showed up at Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on August 25th, it was not just to a surrender one dog, but five! Glenna was one of those dogs. This two to three-year-old Shepherd mix had the misfortune to test heartworm positive. Tragically, one of the other four dogs died during his neutering surgery. If a rescue or adopter couldn’t be found for Glenna, she would end up on the shelter’s “put to sleep” list.
On September 9th Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our help for Glenna. Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking her, but only if they could get her heartworm treatment costs covered. We agreed to assist, and the deal was sealed for Glenna! She received her heartworm treatment on October 13th.
A shelter volunteer told us this about Glenna: “She is sweet and walks great on a lead. She is very laid back. Glenna is one of the more friendly of the surrendered dogs. She was kenneled at the shelter with RADAR-assisted Mustang and they were very good together.” To see more photos of Glenna, click here.
RADAR paid all of Glenna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $223.
UPDATE! All funds for Glenna have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Glenna has been adopted!
