The Frances R. Willis SPCA is currently overwhelmed with heart worm positive dogs. They are very sweet and adoptable and will make great companions, but they need heart worm treatment.
Without this lifesaving treatment they will not be able to survive. Some shelters just automatically euthanize any dogs that test positive for heart worms but the Frances R. Willis SPCA believes these dogs deserve a chance at life.
How can you help?
1) Foster a heart worm positive dog. The treatment can be stressful so it is best that dogs receive their treatment in a loving home environment. The medical funds are paid for through donations to the shelter.
Foster families are responsible for basics like food and flea and heart worm prevention.
2) If you don’t have the time or circumstances to foster, sponsor a heart worm positive dog by paying for its treatment.
Of course, you can choose options one and two if you wish. To learn more about fostering and/or sponsoring a wonderful animal who needs help, contact Patti at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 873-5918.
