Sneezy and her six siblings arrived at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on May 28th. The seven dogs were named for the Seven Dwarfs in the Snow White story. Their owner could no longer care for the dogs. Five of the dogs were heartworm negative and quickly left for rescue. Sneezy, a three-year-old female Labrador Retriever mix, and Doc, tested positive for heartworms, making their rescue status more problematic. The expense of treating dogs for heartworms is financially difficult for most rescues, with so many other costs incurred as part of rescuing dogs.
To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Sneezy and Doc, but needed their heartworms to be treated first. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, requested our assistance on June 28th. We committed to help Sneezy and Doc. They both completed their heartworm treatment on July 22nd.
“Sneezy’s name should actually be Smiley!” Susan told us. “This lap-size snuggly girl is so happy to see people, with no introduction necessary. She loves everybody! With medium energy and good leash skills, she would be a great companion for any family. A typical rescue dog, she is gentle and kissy, and so grateful for the time you spend with her. Sneezy would appreciate a family who can give her a lot of attention and affection. This pretty girl is striking to see in person with her coat tinted with merle and her freckled nose.” Be sure to view more photos in Sneezy’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Sneezy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $235.
