The tragic circumstances surrounding Misty’s shelter surrender will have you misty-eyed. On November 6th, six-year-old Misty, a Boxer blend, was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. A friend of Misty’s owner brought Misty to the shelter after her owner had committed suicide. Understandably, Misty was very sad and confused. To add to Misty’s woes, she tested heartworm positive.

Two days later, One Life to Live Pet Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Misty. The only hitch was that her heartworm treatment costs needed to be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately asked for our help. We agreed at once, and Misty was safe. She received her heartworm treatment on December 29th.

The shelter had this report on Misty: “She was the best walking companion, never in a rush, and she was very calm and polite. Misty loved rolling in the grass and getting her belly rubbed. She was friendly and respectful of the other humans and dogs we met. However, Misty might be too interested in cats!” To view more photos of Misty, click here.

RADAR paid all of Misty’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $298.
