If Piper were a pilot, we’d have the perfectly-named plane for her: a Piper Cub! But Piper was grounded at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. One to two years old and a Labrador Retriever mix, Piper was picked up as a stray by animal control on November 23rd. Testing heartworm positive, Piper spent the entire holiday season stuck at the shelter.
On January 3rd Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, asked for our help with Piper. Almost Home Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking Piper, but they could do so only if her heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We agreed, which secured Piper’s rescue commitment. She had her heartworm treatment done on January 13th.
Susan had this to share with us: “Piper is docile and very submissive. She loves kids, people, dogs,and cats! Piper bows down when petted and casually walks by cats. She is perfect as a family pet, and lies down when greeted by children or other animals. The most gentle Lab I have ever encountered! Piper does not jump on people and walks easily on a lead. She responds when called. Piper will steal your heart!” Click here to view more photos of Piper.
RADAR paid all of Piper’s heartworm treatment costs, totaling $339.
