Tinker needed a little bit of magic to find a new life after she ended up at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina on December 5th. A two- to three-year-old Shepherd mix, Tinker was surrendered to animal control with her siblings, Bell and Sassy, when their previous owners said they could no longer care for the three of them. Tinker ran into more trouble when it turned out that she was heartworm positive, which would make finding a forever home that much harder.
On January 13th, One Life to Live Rescue and Adoption in Pennsylvania came forward to take Tinker. The only hurdle was the cost of her heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue, turned to us for help. We agreed, and Tinker received her heartworm treatment on January 22nd.
Despite Tinker’s time at the shelter, we were told that she maintained her sunny disposition. She is described as being very sweet and affectionate! “Tinker has mingled nicely with other dogs,” we were told. “She is a nice smaller-sized girl and won’t take up much space on the couch as she curls up beside you!” Click here to view more photos of Tinker.
RADAR paid all of Tinker’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $227.
