After recently assisting both Fred and Wilma, we just had to help Pebbles as well! This five to six-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 15th. Sadly, her owner could no longer care for Pebbles, so she was surrendered to the shelter. It was not a happy holiday season for poor Pebbles. As an added obstacle to her getting adopted or rescued, she was heartworm positive.
The New Year brought a turn of luck for Pebbles. Puppy Paws Rescue in Maryland would take her IF her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help on New Year’s Day. We agreed, making Pebbles the first dog we committed to assist in 2014. Pebbles received her heartworm treatment on January 21st. Because of her larger size, the treatment for Pebbles was more costly than anticipated. RADAR supporter Melissa Feeney graciously provided some extra funding help.
Susan shared this us this about Pebbles: “She gets along with other dogs. Pebbles is wonderful with cats, and children as well. She is very friendly and enjoys belly rubs! She is crate trained and knows some basic commands. Pebbles is such an easygoing girl. She does not jump to get attention, but will wait patiently. Pebbles is a very laid-back dog who will easily fit into any willing family!” To view more photos of Pebbles, click here.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Pebbles, which totaled $338.
UPDATE! All funds for Pebbles have been raised! Thank you!
