Decorate Our Tree of Love
Help Mend Our “Broken” Hearts
It’s that magical time of year! We are kicking off our Valentine’s Day fundraiser to help all the heartworm positive dogs that will joining our pack.
In 2020 we rescued 37 heartworm positive dogs. Each one of them has been treated and they are all doing fabulous.
Today we are raising money to mend more broken hearts.
Heartworm disease is serious, highly preventable, and can cause lasting damage to a dog’s lungs, heart and/or other organs. The damage is caused by parasitic worms and is spread through the bite of a mosquito.
The frustrating part is heartworm disease can easily be prevented. All it takes to keep a dog free from this disease is one little pill a month.
On average it costs us on average $700.00 per dog for the heartworm treatment only. That’s over $25,000.00 we spent treating these 37 dogs just for their heartworm disease. Any other vetting, they may have needed is in addition to the $25K.
We are hoping you will help us fund heartworm treatments for all the heartworm positive dogs who will be joining our pack. We already have two that have joined us – Bronx and Sid. We are working on finding fosters for our next two – Enyo and Walker Hound…
Your donations will have a lasting impact on all our pack members with heartworm disease.
