“You don’t need to be coy, Roy!” Poor Roy has had a rough time of it for a long time. Folks in the community where he was found reported that the two to four-year-old Labrador Retriever mix had been a stray in their area for over a year. He was admitted to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on January 29th. Roy was very itchy and had patches of hair missing, which turned out to be sarcoptic mange. He shook his head consistently, had green discharge from his nose, had dental disease and, of course, was heartworm positive.
Luckily for Roy, the good folks at Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania expressed interest in taking him. However, Roy would require lots of funding for all of his much-needed vet care, including his costly heartworm treatment. On March 9th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our help with Roy. We agreed to cover his heartworm treatment and Roy safe!
When Roy had his dental work done, the vet found a large piece of metal wedged in the roof of his mouth! He was finally well enough to receive his heartworm treatment on May 23rd.
“Roy has a calm to medium energy level,” Susan shared with us. “He’s sweet, with wagging-tail tendencies when being approached. He’s friendly with other dogs.” Click here to view more photos of Roy.
RADAR paid all of Roy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $397.
