Presenting Roberta: the dog, the problem and the solution.

The dog. Roberta is a medium-sized, one- to two-year-old Bully Breed mix. She is playful, walks well on a leash, and is friendly and social with everyone she meets! She’s been introduced to both male and female dogs and was happy to make friends with both. People are also lots of fun because when people are around, that means playtime, petting, and treats! This awesome girl would love nothing more than a forever home where she can know the love and affection of a family or person who is devoted to her. She will pay your affection back a hundred times over with years of love and loyalty! Click here to view more photos of Roberta.

The problem. Roberta was picked up as a stray by animal control on March 14th and taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina. Not surprisingly, Roberta tested positive for heartworms. On June 30th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking Roberta. However, there was just one problem: the cost of her heartworm treatment.

The Solution. RADAR to the rescue! Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, immediately sought our help. We agreed and Roberta was safe! She had her heartworm treatment done on July 15th and 16th.

RADAR paid all of Roberta’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $385.

UPDATE! All funds for Roberta have been raised! Thank you!
