It wasn’t always happy days for Laverne and Shirley, two Corgi mixes who ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter on March 4th. Laverne, who is somewhere between two and three years old, was brought in by animal control along with Shirley after they were picked up on a road in the area. Things weren’t looking good for this bonded pair, as they were both heartworm positive, which hindered their chances of being rescued or adopted.
Thankfully, there was still hope for Laverne and Shirley, as Good Shepherd K9 Rescue in New York was interested in pulling them both from the shelter. The only thing that stood in their way of being saved was receiving heartworm treatment. On March 29th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, reached out to us to see if we could help. We agreed to assist, and both of these sweet girls received their heartworm treatment on April 9th.
We were told that Laverne and Shirley are both super sweet, polite, and they do well on a leash. “What more could you ask for in a pet?” the shelter said. Not much, we think! Click here to view more photos of Laverne.
RADAR paid all of Laverne’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $197.
UPDATE! All funds for Laverne have been raised! Thank you!
