“Leave no stone unturned” sure applied to the efforts to save Stone. A two to three-year-old Chow Chow-Husky mix, Stone arrived as stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on April 29th. Looking more like a teddy bear than a dog, Stone certainly had the “curb appeal” to easily attract a rescue or adopter. But when Stone tested heartworm positive, all bets were off.
On May 7th, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, Susan Blakeney, contacted us about Stone. Home At Last Dog Rescue in Pennsylvania was interested in taking him, but only IF his heartworm treatment costs could be covered. We agreed to assist, securing Stone’s rescue commitment! When he went for his heartworm treatment on June 14th, out of concerns for his health, the vet only did a partial treatment. He had to return on July 19th for the rest of his treatment, which added significantly to the total cost.
We were told this about Stone from his time at the shelter: “He is the lushest guy at the shelter, and looks like an overstuffed teddy bear! He is so cute and polite. He did well with other dogs, and even a cat. Stone is a friendly guy, but not bouncy or hyper. He is calm and quiet.” To see more photos of Stone, click here.
RADAR paid all of Stone’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $474.
