Presenting Reba: the dog, the problem and the solution.
The dog. Reba is a 45-pound, two to three-year-old Collie mix. She is described as a sweetheart. She is super sweet with humans, and wants to crawl into your lap! She does not pay attention to cats. To see more photos of Reba, click here.
The problem. Reba was brought in as a stray by animal control to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 22nd. This great dog had an even greater problem: heartworms. However, on April 5th, Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania offered to take her. But there was still one problem: the cost of her heartworm treatment.
The Solution. RADAR’s help! Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, sought our assistance on April 5th. “Could you help this sunny-faced, poofy-jacketed lady?” We agreed, and Reba was safe! She had her heartworm treatment done on April 24th.
RADAR paid all $255 of the heartworm treatment costs for Reba.
UPDATE! All funds for Reba have been raised! Thank you!
