Remember, remember, the fifth of November because it may have been Patsy’s last day. This beautiful two to three-year-old Pit Bull mix was found as a stray and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue shelter in South Carolina on September 23rd. Despite her lovable personality, Patsy was in a difficult place. Being a Pit Bull mix is a tough enough hurdle for any stray to overcome in an overcrowded rural shelter, but Patsy received a double blow with a heartworm positive status. With very little prospect for adoption or rescue, she was scheduled to be put to sleep on November 5th.
RADAR caught wind of Patsy’s struggle on November 1st. With only a few days left before her time would run out, RADAR offered to assist with Patsy’s heartworm treatment if a rescue would be willing to take her. Patsy had been at the shelter for almost two months and with little hope of getting out alive, but a mere five days after RADAR’s offer was made the Virginia Paws for Pits Rescue agreed to take her! She received her heartworm treatment on December 2nd.
According to Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, “Patsy is a waggy-tailed sweetheart and is perfectly poised to be your best friend! She enjoys being around other dogs, works well with children and doesn’t seem to mind cats. Patsy is an easy-going lady who loves belly rubs. She is as content to just hang out and share some love as she is to join in on an adventure!” Click here to see more photos of Patsy.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Patsy, which totaled $269.
