Our mission is to remove Heartworm disease as a barrier to adoption for dogs from Montgomery County animal shelters by working with adopters and other nonprofit rescues to supply treatment.   

Be a Heart Hero

Thousands of homeless dogs enter our local shelter every year, and up to 40% of them are Heartworm Positive. A Heartworm Positive dog is 75% less likely to be adopted than a Heartworm Negative dog. Heart Heroes provide hope for the Heartworm Positive dogs who are looked over by adopters and rescues everyday, at no fault of their own. 

Provide ongoing hope and become a monthly Heart Hero today by donating to The Heartworm Foundation through the PayPal Giving Fund by clicking an optio below.

We are very excited to come alongside MCAS and support their Wellness Clinic in our community. 
The Heartworm Foundation will be transitioning their shelter dog treatment program this fall to slow kill only.

👉🏻All applications and required paperwork for fast kill must be submitted by September 15, 2019. 

THF will continue to cover heartworm treatment for qualified MCAS adopters using slow kill protocol. This is an exciting time at MCAS and we are thankful to be working alongside a shelter that has implemented their own slow kill protocol for their current residents. We believe with our combined efforts we will make an even bigger impact reducing heartworm disease in our community.


Providing Senior Shelter Dogs Care with NO Wait

The Heartworm Foundation always advocates for the under-dog, which is why we are now offering no-cost Heartworm treatment to senior shelter dogs without the 45-day shelter stay requirement! A huge thank you to The Grey Muzzle Organization for providing us this grant to save more lives! Senior classification varies depending on breed, age and condition. Please contact us if you would like to verify that an adoptable dog is eligible for no-cost Heartworm treatment through The Heartworm Foundation.
