Luna’s story shows how a negative can be a positive and how a positive can quickly turn out to be a negative. When Luna, a one-year old Lab mix, arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 14th, she tested heartworm negative, which enabled her to quickly get a rescue commitment. But by the time she was ready to be transported to the rescue, she re-tested heartworm positive.
As much as Peppertree Rescue in New York still wanted to take Luna, they could only do so if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wasted no time in seeking our help with Luna’s heartworm treatment costs. We agreed, and Luna was safe once more! She received her heartworm treatment on April 3rd.
“Luna has an A+ personality!” we were told. “She is excellent with other dogs, cats and kids of all ages. She is friendly, approachable and softly affectionate. She has a sweet, calm personality. Luna is well behaved and was a staff and volunteer favorite.” Click here to view more photos of Luna.
RADAR paid all of Luna’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $325.
