In Hebrew, Sarah means “princess,” and we think that this gal should be treated like a princess in her golden years. A twelve-year-old mix of Heeler and Mountain Cur, Sarah has been passed over many times at the shelter due to her age. When her owner surrendered Sarah to the Kershaw County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on March 25th, Sarah didn’t exactly plan on moving in with a bunch of other dogs. After that, Sarah was just waiting for someone to take her to a nice, quiet home where she could relax and enjoy life. Sadly, another thing holding Sarah back from being rescued or adopted was that she was heartworm positive.
On June 21st, Stefanie McElveen with the Kershaw County Humane Society shelter asked RADAR for help with Sarah. We offered to provide assistance with the cost of her heartworm treatment, which would give Sarah a better chance of being rescued or adopted. She began her treatment on July 28th.
“Sarah is definitely set in her ways but is still a sweetie,” Stefanie told us. “She’d prefer to be the only dog but seems to get along well with cats. She is a volunteer favorite because of her calm demeanor and gentle walking.” To see more photos of Sarah, click here.
RADAR paid all $279 of the heartworm treatment medication costs for Sarah.
