Just think, if Karp became your pet, you’d have a new Karpet! But there’s no need to harp on Karp! This four-year-old Lab mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 28th. For no known reason, Karp was dumped at the shelter by his owners. He had several strikes against him: he was heartworm positive, he had demodex mange on his ears and he’s a black dog. Karp joined a long list of dogs on the dreaded PTS (Put To Sleep) list for July 17th.
Through the diligent work of the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, all the dogs on the PTS list were saved, except for one: Karp. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society volunteers, urgently sought our help to provide an assistance offer for Karp as an incentive for a rescue to take him. We did, and it worked! The Good Shepherd K9 Rescue in New York agreed to take Karp!
On July 29th Karp received his heartworm treatment. Susan had this to share with us about Karp: “He’s very social, and a happy fellow. Karp is sweet and friendly. He’s good with other dogs. He’s very affectionate and a huge fan of belly rubs!” Click here to view more photos of Karp.
RADAR paid all of Karp’s heartworm treatment costs of $249.
