No one could possibly say “No” to Noah, but yet he sat in the shelter for over three weeks feeling unwanted and definitely unnoticed. This three- to four-year-old Hound mix with distinctive baby-blue eyes was brought to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina as a stray on February 4th. He had a microchip but it was unregistered. This great dog had a big obstacle blocking his chances for adoption or rescue: he was heartworm positive.
On February 24th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked us if we could help with Noah’s heartworm treatment. Some volunteers had taken Noah out to the exercise area and his wagging tail and friendly welcoming personality had caught the eye of One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania, but they needed his heartworm treatment costs to be covered. Could RADAR “close the deal from almost safe to safe?” We said we’d help to seal the rescue deal for Noah!
On March 19th, Noah completed his heartworm treatment. “He is an excellent choice for a family with other dogs and kids,” we were told. “Trips to the local dog park or a stroll through a Main Street environment would surely make his day. Noah has never met a stranger and has an easygoing, pleasant disposition. He has everyone at ‘Hello!’” Click here to view more photos of Noah.
RADAR paid all of Noah’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $249.
