Time was rapidly running out for Pandora on April 28th. This four-year-old Lab mix was scheduled to be euthanized the following day. She had been surrendered by her owners to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina way back on January 10th. Pandora’s critical status was largely the result of testing heartworm positive, which greatly reduced her rescue or adoption options.
Just in the nick of time, To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania came forward to save Pandora. The only remaining barrier to saving her life was finding funding for her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society, quickly turned to us for help. We agreed at once to help, and Pandora was safe! Her split heartworm treatments took place on June 18th and July 23rd.
“Pandora was turning all the heads at the shelter with her sleek coat, perky ears, and perfect mid-size stature,” we were told. “She really enjoys humans and will soak up all the love and attention she can garner! She’s very polite and mellow and great on a leash. She’s a very loving gal but just not so keen on being close with other dogs. Her energy, disposition and overall personality would make her a great choice for a family with kids who are looking for a snuggly companion. She would nicely fill this role!” Click here to view more photos of Pandora.
RADAR paid all of Pandora’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $410.
