It would have been insane not to help Jane! This one to two-year-old Hound mix arrived as a stray on March 6th at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Jane was a bit of a “flatliner” at the shelter, always keeping her body and head close to the ground, hoping no one would notice or hurt her. Luckily, she was brave enough to allow a student volunteer to take her for a walk and discover that she was a snuggly sweetie pie! Not so luckily, Jane tested heartworm positive. On March 30th she was placed on the shelter’s “put to sleep” list for April 6th.

RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, contacted us on March 31st to ask for our help with Jane. We provide an offer to pay her heartworm treatment costs to encourage a rescue to take her. On April 1st, Tree Tops Animal Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Jane! Her heartworm treatment took place on April 12th.

We learned this about Jane from Susan: “She is a super sweet girl and can be kind of shy. She’s happiest when she is on your lap getting lots of attention. Leashes and new situations can be overwhelming for her, so a forever family with some patience to care for her would be perfect for Jane. She’s not aggressive and she loves people. She is very cute and will inch towards you for some loving attention!”

Jane is currently in a great foster home. Her foster reports that, “Jane continues to be very timid around people. She will approach me on her own terms when I am sitting down and she will touch my hand or even give me kisses. But if I reach out to touch her, she backs away. Jane retreats if approached directly and will look for an escape. It only took her a day or two here to learn the routine. Once she knew where her crate was, I could let her go in and out on her own with the pack. She does not have any aggression with people or other dogs. She is just very fearful of touch. She is a calm and gentle, sweet-spirited girl who needs a patient person who will let her progress in her own time. She needs at least one other dog and I think she would do better with a larger pack.” Click here to view more photos of Jane.

RADAR paid all of Jane’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $246.
