It looked like Lucy’s lucky day would be December 12th, when an approved adoption applicant came to meet her at the shelter. Unfortunately, Lucy was not adopted. Perhaps her need for heartworm treatment was a factor. Lucy, a two- to three-year-old Hound-Lab mix, had arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on October 2nd and it looked like she’d have to wait a bit longer.

But Lucy’s luck had not run out on December 12th. When her adoption fell through, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania stepped up to take her the same day! The only barrier was the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked if we could cover Lucy’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed at once. She received her heartworm treatment on January 8th.

“Beautiful Lucy is such a wonderful loving, friendly girl!” we were told. “She has a gorgeous coat and a very interesting face with one blue and one gray eye. She has playful energy and would be a great fit in an active home, and could also live nicely with children. Lucy will make a loving lifelong companion to the person who is lucky enough to adopt her!” To see more photos of Lucy, click here.

RADAR paid all of Lucy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $249.
