In English, the name Kathy means “pure.” The popularity of the name has consistently dropped over the last half-century, which makes finding a Kathy, or a pure heart, harder to do nowadays. This Kathy, a five-year-old Bully Breed mix, lives up to her name. On March 31st, Kathy arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. She had multiple wounds, including a very large tear on the side of her tongue. With the combination of being a Bully Breed and testing positive for heartworms, Kathy was at risk.
Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to us on June 12th to ask if RADAR could help Kathy. We offered to assist with the costs of her heartworm treatment as incentive for a rescue to take her in. Shortly thereafter, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania agreed to rescue Kathy! She received her heartworm treatment on June 21st.
“She is such a wonderful girl,” Susan told us. “She loves everyone and just wants to be in your lap getting love. If I had to name her today, she would be Lady Di, as she is always poised and even-tempered. She is often overlooked because she never begs for attention.” To see more photos of Kathy, click here.
RADAR paid all $264 of the heartworm treatment costs for Kathy.
