A heartworm positive dog in a rural shelter that is closed to the public, we named her Abba . She got put on the transport truck today and we decided to pull 2 more heartworm positive dogs from the same shelter. Yes, we pulled them specifically because they are heartworms positive.
MOST dogs down south that are over two years old (sometimes 1 yrs) that we pull from shelters are heartworms positive. In most cases it is 100 percent treatable. Heartworms treatment costs vary per vet , it is very expensive.
Finances should not determine whether an animal’s life is spared, they all deserve equal opportunity and they are all wonderful dogs. Along with Abba, we yeeted Scott and Charmin into the transport truck as well. Vetting for all 3 heartworms positive dogs plus Abba’s other ailments, vaccines, alter, fecals, chipping , transport etc will be well over $3,000 for these 3 dogs. We have raised enough for Abba but Scott and Charmin need funds as well. Again, we stand 100 percent committed to pulling as many heartworms positive dogs as we can. Any financial contribution towards Scott and Charmin is most certainly appreciated.
