Lizzie, a four- to five-year-old Hound mix, was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 28th. She arrived along with a friend, a Pointer mom and the mom’s seven newborn pups. A rescue stepped up to help Lizzie’s friend and the newborns because it was an urgent situation. Lizzie waited patiently, but luckily not for long. Her sweet temperament and easygoing disposition made her a fast favorite with shelter staff and volunteers. However, Lizzie did have an obstacle in her path to rescue or adoption: she had heartworms.
On June 2nd, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, told us that Peppertree Rescue in New York wanted to rescue Lizzie but needed her heartworms treated first. We agreed to assist. She had her heartworm treatments on July 14th and 15th.
“Lizzie meets other dogs politely and mingles with them nicely,” Susan shared with us. “Lizzie enjoys a leisurely walk, some time outside, and then snuggling on the couch. She is a well-balanced, social lady who greets every new person happily. She would appreciate a new furever family who can give her all the attention she deserves.” Be sure to view more photos in Lizzie’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Lizzie’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $284.
UPDATE! All funds for Lizzie have been raised! Thank you!
