There’s no need to have a pet peeve when you can have a pet Reeve! This two to three-year-old Plott Hound-Mountain Cur mix was picked up by animal control on May 2nd. Reeve was taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. As yet another heartworm positive dog in a crowded rural kill shelter, Reeve faced long odds of getting out of the shelter alive. As May turned to June, Reeve ended up on the shelter’s “Put To Sleep” list.
On June 3rd, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Reeve. However, they could only do so if Reeve could get her heartworm treatment done and paid. RADAR’s liaison with Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, turned to us for help. We agreed, and Reeve was safe!
Reeve received her heartworm treatment on June 25th. Susan told us this about Reeve: “She is super social and friendly! This mid-sized brindle beauty will brighten up your day with her cheerful attitude. She is a lover of laps and a sharer of kisses, and she has just the right dose of goofiness. Reeve should make a great family pet!” Click here to view more photos of Reeve.
RADAR paid all of the heartworm treatment costs for Reeve, which totaled $206.
UPDATE! All funds for Reeve have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Reeve has been adopted!
