This Violet is no shrinking violet, but a bundle of love and delight! Violet is a very small, seven-year-old Beagle. She arrived on September 21st as a stray at the Darlington County Humane Society shelter in South Carolina, along with her fellow Beagle and best buddy, five-year-old Virginia.
Both of these Beagles have had a rough life, and suffered from neglect. Their coats were coarse and brittle; both dogs were thin, fatigued, and had sarcoptic mange; and Virginia tested heartworm positive. Click here for more photos of Violet.
In mid-October, Darlington County Humane Society Rescue volunteer Susan Blakeney met these two dogs, and was smitten! Half the battle was won when Caring for Creatures, an animal sanctuary and rescue in Virginia, agreed to take Violet and Virginia if their vetting was covered. Now all that Susan had to do was find the funds. Susan turned to RADAR for assistance. RADAR committed to cover the vet costs for Violet and Virginia.
On October 25th, Violet and Virginia were vetted and spayed. Since these two gals are so bonded, they will stay together while Virginia gets her heartworm treatment, and then travel together to Caring for Creatures.
RADAR paid the full $67 cost for Violet’s veterinary care and spaying.
