Turn off the telly as we tell you about Nelly, who would like nothing better than a rub of her belly! One to two-year-old Nelly, a Labrador Retriever mix, arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 1st. Despite being a wonderful dog, there was no adopter or rescue interest. It didn’t help that Nelly was black and heartworm positive.

Just in time for Christmas, there was a rescue nibble for Nelly on December 23rd! Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in pulling her if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, knew just what to do: ask us! We immediately agreed to seal the deal for Nelly. She received her heartworm treatment on February 7th.

“Nelly’s soft to touch and so easy on the eyes!” Susan told us. “She does not have the super-bouncy energy that oftentimes is associated with the young Labs. She’s just as calm, cool and collected as they come. Nelly is a perfect lady on the leash. She is a Miss Manners kind of pet who is superb with other dogs.” Click here to view more photos of Nelly.

RADAR paid all of Nelly’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $268.

UPDATE! All funds for Nelly have been raised! Thank you!
