Nina, a two-year-old Bully Breed mix, felt like a czarina or regina when she finally received the word that a rescue was interested in her! On August 8th, she arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray. She gained needed weight with good shelter meals but waited and waited for a rescue to express interest. Nina was heartworm positive, and the price is high to treat.

On December 16th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, wrote to RADAR asking for our help. One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania wanted to open their doors to Nina, but first her heartworms would need to be treated. We agreed to help Nina, and she completed her heartworm treatment on January 7th.

‘Girls just wanna have fun!’ And if Nina could speak, surely this would be her motto in life! “This sleek, cream-jacketed lady smiles nonstop and her tail is a constant whirl of activity!” Susan told us. “Never meeting a stranger, the more contacts she can make, the better! A good, steady leash walker, Nina loves to go and do. Super social, friendly, affectionate and outgoing, life will simply be greatly enhanced with this wiggly girl by your side. It’s hard to not feel happy and loved when Nina is around!” Be sure to view more photos in Nina’s gallery.

RADAR paid all $232 of the heartworm treatment costs for Nina.

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