Mandy is just dandy! A two to four-year-old Labrador Retriever-Shepherd mix, Mandy was picked up as a stray by animal control on April 29th and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Like so many dogs in the Southeast, Mandy tested heartworm positive. That, combined with being black, made Mandy very vulnerable. For nearly two months she sat unnoticed at the shelter.
On June 19th, Furever Friends Rescue in New York expressed interest in taking Mandy. However, help would be needed for her heartworm treatment costs. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, knew just what to do: ask RADAR. We agreed to assist. Mandy received her heartworm treatments on June 28th and August 2nd.
“Mandy is a gentle girl who loves to be with her people,” Susan told us. “She is very well mannered and walks well on the lead. She is a very loving pup. Mandy is a beautiful girl with a great personality to match and she is ready to start a new life that will hopefully involve lots of yummy treats!” To see more photos of Mandy, click here.
RADAR paid $300 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Mandy.
