Story



Bug "LOOKS" like a healthy little beagle. Unfortunately, she is not only sick, but left untreated, she is DYING.  She is one of the 70% of dogs in our local shelters with the dreaded heartworms, which she got through no fault of her own but because no one ever gave her heartworm preventative. They didn't think she was worth $10 a month. 

More and more states are outlawing the importation of dogs with heartworm disease, claiming it is contagious when in fact it is a vector born disease that can NOT spread via direct contact.  Those laws make it more likely that dogs with heartworm, dogs like Bug, will never be chosen and will be euthanized in overcrowded shelters.  

Treatment costs are substantially higher in northern states as well.  What costs us $400 will easily cost them $1500.  


Bug's treatment, that will kill the heartworms that are currently killing her, costs $400.  That is literally the cost of her life.  $400.  

Will you help us save her life?  Please make a tax-deductible donation today.
