Millie is definitely one in a million! On October 15th, this two to three-year-old-German Shepherd mix arrived as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Millie had the misfortune of testing heartworm positive, which made her far less likely to be adopted or rescued. On December 12th, Millie was placed on the shelter’s “put to sleep” list for December 17th.
RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, asked for our help with Millie on December 12th. RADAR agreed to assist with Millie’s heartworm treatment as an incentive for a rescue to take her. And it worked. On December 13th, To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania agreed to take Millie! She received her heartworm treatment on January 7th.
Susan had a lot of sweet things to say about Millie, “She is sure to impress with her sweet spirit and polite manner. Despite her young age, she is a bit of an old soul with a calm energy, which is very endearing. Millie would fit perfectly into a home that prefers a more settled dog. She is a doting, sensitive girl who loves attention. She is a quieter lady. Draping a crochet shawl over her shoulders would perfectly suit her style!” Click here to view more photos of Millie.
RADAR paid all of Millie’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $241.
