Every year, about 50% of our rescue dogs come to us as "heartworm positive." This means that, due to the negligence of the the humans in their life so far, they were not given the inexpensive, monthly medication that PREVENTS this condition. And so, we begin the 90-day process to kill off the worms. Including the pre-treatment medicine, xrays and immiticide, the cost to treat a dog for heartworms costs approximately $1000 per dog. For larger dogs, the cost is even higher.
Please consider helping us continue to provide this life-saving treatment to the dogs in our care.
