Jenny’s journey took her from being a homeless, nameless and terrified dog to getting healthy and rescued so she could be on her way to her forever home. A two to three-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, Jenny, arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on October 28th. To say that Jenny was frightened and scared at the shelter is an understatement. She would tremble in her kennel, and had to be carried to the area to have her photos taken. Little did Jenny know she had an even greater woe to worry about: heartworms.
On December 5th, To Love a Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in pulling Jenny. The only thing standing in the way of Jenny’s journey was her heartworm treatment costs. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, wasted no time in seeking our help. We agreed to cover the costs to seal the rescue deal! Jenny had her heartworm treatments done on December 14th and January 24th.
Susan shared this story with us about Jenny and how she got her name: “On October 29th a group of student volunteers were drawn to the new intake kennels. One kennel had a nameless black dog inside who was too scared to walk on the lead. They felt sorry for her being nameless, so they asked the staff if they could name her and they chose the name Jenny. One of the students then sat with Jenny for an hour. Jenny did not move and the student just kept stroking her fur and reassuring her.” Susan also told us that, “this poor lady is no longer as scared of her shadow, and now has a chance at a full-time pet job thanks to RADAR’s help!” Click here to view more photos of Jenny.
RADAR paid all of Jenny’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $317.
