Stan is a refined fellow who finds pleasure in quiet moments and peaceful scenery. Somewhere between one and two years old, he’s a Lab mix on the slightly smaller side, weighing in at about 37 pounds. Despite his excellent manners and friendly attitude, Stan was surrendered to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on September 18th because his owner was no longer able to care for him. Unfortunately, sweet and slight Stan had a big problem: he was heartworm positive.
Worthy Dog Rescue, which is based in the Washington, DC metro area, expressed interest in pulling Stan from the shelter, but his heartworm treatment needed to be taken care of. On October 26th, Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, sought our assistance with the cost of his heartworm treatment. We agreed, and he was safe! He received his treatment on November 13th.
Stan was described as a curious, mild-mannered and polite fellow who does not ask for much. He would welcome kids into his world and would also be fine sharing his life with another dog. Never pushy or clingy, Stan takes everything in great stride. He walks well on a leash. And, even after being swatted by a cat, he had no reaction!” Click here to view more photos of Stan.
RADAR paid all of Stan’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $197.
UPDATE! All funds for Stan have been raised! Thank you!
