Greta was one of sixteen Hounds who were found to be starving as part of an abusive hoarding case. When animal control arrived at the property on May 2nd, two of the Hounds had already died of starvation. The surviving fourteen dogs were taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. One rescue took a dozen of the dogs! Another rescue pulled one of the dogs, which left only one to two-year-old Greta in need of a rescue placement. Amazingly enough, she did not have heartworms.
On July 8th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, inquired to see if we could help with Greta. Caring for Creatures in Virginia, where Susan also volunteers, was interested in taking her if her initial vetting and spaying costs could be provided. We agreed. Following her initial vetting, she was spayed July 3rd. On July 21st she was transported to Caring for Creatures.
“Greta had a pretty grim start in life but you would never know it in meeting her,” the rescue reported. “She is happy, playful, spirited, fun and simply fabulous! Never meeting a stranger, albeit a human or other dogs, she is personality plus and is ready to live life to the fullest. Greta is interactive and energetic and would be perfect for an active family. Anything with water will earn you extra points in her book! She is always smiling and wagging her tail, and very grateful for all the care she is now receiving. You can’t help but feel how happy she is and see how eager she is to please you. We think she’s the best!” To see more photos of Greta, click here.
RADAR paid all $211 of the initial vetting and spaying costs for Greta.
