Phillip, a four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, has no royal credentials despite sharing his name with Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip. He arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on July 15th. His background is unknown since he was a stray. What is known is that his former owner did not give him heartworm preventive, as he tested heartworm positive. Phillip waited for a month for any adoption or rescue interest, with his heartworm status and the high cost of treatment being a major factor.

Some hope came Phillip’s way when Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in Phillip if his heartworms could be treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, contacted us on August 13th, asking us to help Phillip. We agreed to cover his heartworm treatment costs. Phillip finished his heartworm treatment on August 20th.

Phillip is a polite, good-natured and mellow guy who walks well on a leash. He’s a solid, steady boy, not flashy and never in any real rush except to get some loving. He truly is a “Lab-lover’s dog,” loving all people and other dogs. Phillip needs an active family who can give him the quality playtime he needs. Click here to view more photos of Phillip.

RADAR paid all of Phillip’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $336.
