What’s the difference between a heartworming story and a heartwarming story? For Harold, it’s your support of RADAR! This three-year-old Shepherd mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 21st. Testing heartworm positive, Harold was at grave risk of ever getting out of the shelter alive.

Thanks to the tireless networking efforts of the volunteers with the Darlington County Humane Society, a rescue was found for Harold! The TreeTops Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take Harold, but only if his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, Susan Blakeney, sought our assistance. While Harold’s routine vetting care costs could be covered, RADAR’s help was needed for his heartworm treatment. We agreed to cover the cost of Harold’s heartworm treatment, which was done on March 21st.

Susan had this to tell us about Harold  “He’s a gentle hugger and kisser. Harold has perfect manners. He has a calm personality and a sweet disposition.” To view more photos of Harold, click here.

RADAR paid all of Harold’s $205 heartworm treatment bill.
