There’s nothing maudlin about Madeline! This beautiful black Lab mix, arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 3rd. She was brought in as a stray when she and another dog, Sarge, were found wandering down a road. This shy one- to two-year-old girl was friendly with people and other dogs, but her chances for adoption or rescue were limited by her positive heartworm status.

On February 1st, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help for Madeline. Peppertree Rescue in New York wanted to take Madeline if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We said we would help, and on February 5th, Madeline completed her heartworm treatment.

The shelter staff had so many good things to say about Madeline: “She is your go-to girl if you’re looking for someone to make you smile each day. She loves everyone she meets. Her tail never stops wagging and her smile is very contagious. An excellent meeter and greeter with other dogs, Madeline will impress you as she nicely sits by your side or keeps a calm, steady pace on leashed walks. A great choice for a family with kids and other dogs, this well-balanced lady is happy, polite and a real joy to hang out with. Weighing about 50 pounds, Madeline would assure you that she really is the ideal size for your lap!” To see more photos of Madeline, click here.

RADAR paid all $305 of the heartworm treatment costs for Madeline.
