Trooper was found in the sheriff’s department parking lot, dragging a chain. He had an infected embedded collar, but despite his pain, he was all wags and smiles. He must have been looking for help, and that’s what he got! He was taken to the Darlington County Humane Society shelter on March 25th. A one- to two-year-old black-furred Labrador Retriever-Bully Breed mix, Trooper had his embedded collar removed and his neck wound treated. His color and heartworm positive status meant that Trooper would need extra help to exit the shelter.
To Love A Canine Rescue in Pennsylvania wanted to rescue Trooper, but needed financial assistance with his costly heartworm treatment. Susan Blakeney, RADAR’s liaison with the Darlington County Humane Society Rescue asked for our help on May 28th. We secured Trooper’s rescue by agreeing to pay for his heartworm treatment costs. He had his treatment on June 2nd.
Trooper holds no grudges for his previous pain and is ready to get on with the rest of his life! “He is a laid-back guy, but has a playful side,” Susan shared with us. “He walks well on a leash, plays fetch and wants to be where the people and the action is.” Be sure to view more photos in Trooper’s gallery.
RADAR paid all of Trooper’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $325.
