6/25/19 – Happy Update – It was early May when Belfor was rescued by a kind man while he was working on an electric circuit. Belfor was skin and bones and his hip bone kept popping out. Efforts were made to find an owner but none could be found. Belfor was taken to the vet where is hip issue was treated but he was found to be heart worm positive. That’s when we were called in to help. Belfor has completed his treatment and the only thing left is another visit to confirm the hear worm has gone. He has gained weight, has his energy back, is being taken for walks in the park and just made a new friend. The neighbors recently rescued a dog and the couples are positive the dogs must have known each other before because they have become best friends. Look at the difference that medical treatment and love can do in just a little more than 6 weeks.
As anyone knows, who has had the misfortune of a pet being diagnosed with heart worm, heart worm treatment is very expensive but it can be avoided by providing year-round preventative. As they say in the commercials, it only takes one mosquito to infect your dog with the deadly worms.
We have helped with several heart worm dogs, broken legs, and eye removals this past Spring– not to mention all of the neuters/spays. Without the support of our donors and our community businesses, these animals would not have a chance. We are sincerely thankful; but, as always, must ask that if you find yourself with a little extra money, please consider making a donation to save a life. ~ diana
