Hi, it’s me, Kirby! I’m a two to three-year-old Shepherd mix. My former owner feared for my safety because I kept getting out of the yard and would head to a busy road. So, on September 26th, he opted to surrender me to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. The hope was that a new family might take me in and keep me safe. But it wasn’t that simple. There were lots of other dogs at this shelter with the same hope. And it didn’t help my situation that I had heartworms.
Unknown to me, the kind folks with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue were trying to find a rescue to take me. On October 25th, I got some potentially good news: To Love a Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in me. The only catch was that the cost of my heartworm treatment needed to be covered. A nice lady name Susan Blakeney knew just what to do: ask RADAR! Thanks to RADAR’s loyal supporters, they agreed to pay for all of my heartworm treatment, which secured my rescue. I got my heartworm treatment on November 1st. Thank goodness that’s done.
When a group of high school kids came to the shelter, I was the cool dog! You should have seen how softly affectionate and friendly I was when the kids took me for a walk. Many wanted to walk me, and boy, did they love swarming over me because I am so open to attention and unbridled loving. Calm and very composed, I’m your go-to guy if you are looking for a family man to join your group of kids and other dogs who might already be waiting for me in your homestead.

RADAR paid all of Kirby’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $287.
