The shelter currently has 11 heartworm positive dogs (including Candace pictured). At the beginning of the summer there were 3 and now there are 11, not counting the 2 that just finished treatment. Our jr volunteers have worked hard all summer trying to raise money to start a treatment on these dogs. Conley and Cowboy were the first to be treated and cost $1,200. We almost lost Cowboy. They raised about $3000 over the summer and paid for those 2. They are ready to start on more. Each dog can cost anywhere from $500 – $1,000 to treat based on their size. With your help we can continue to move forward with treating the dogs there and the ones that will come into the shelter in the future.
