The Heartworm Foundation hits 100!
On July 27 Winston became the 100th dog to be treated by The Heartworm Foundation! Thank you to all that have gotten us to #100! We're currently averaging 20 dogs treated per month thanks to your generous contributions.
These are just a few of the many shelter dogs that The Heartworm Foundation has treated.
Brody was very scared at MCAS and kept on being overlooked in part due to being HW positive. Some of the volunteers advocated for him and after spending 5 months at the shelter, he was pulled by Operation Pets Alive, treated thanks to your generosity and placed into a loving home thanks to PAWS New England. He finally got his happy ending because three great organizations came together and with the help of our generous supporters.
Poor Rinn is a very quiet and laid back guy. Combine that with being HW positive and those might have been the reasons why this cutie kept on getting overlooked. He spent three long months at MCAS when one of the our volunteers noticed him and we made him a hopeful candidate. OPA agreed to take him into their program and THF sponsored his treatment. With the help of PAWS new England, Rinn is now enjoying the good life up North.
Cheyenne came to MCAS as part of a cruelty seizure. A plea went out and our board members knew we had to do something for this sweet girl. She became a Hopeful and was pulled by Operation Pets Alive. She has undergone heartworm treatment, but is currently still in treatment for other medical issues due to the severe neglect she had to endure.
Christina came to MCAS in February. She watched her several of her kennel mates get adopted, but people kept on passing on her and we just cannot under stand why since she is pretty perfect. After three months, once again Operation Pets Alive, PAWS New England and THF came together to give her a chance and she is now living the good life In New England.
Liza had been waiting for three months at MCAS. This shy girl was a favorite amongst the volunteers, but she just kept on getting overlooked by adopters so THF decided to make her a Hopeful. A kind foster volunteered to see her through heartworm treatment and Who Rescued Who put her into their program. Liza is currently available for adoption and we are confident that she will have her happy ending soon.
Ceaser was originally adopted in 2014, but was found as a stray and entered the shelter once again in 2017. He spent 4 months at MCAS until he was pulled by Operation Pets Alive and treated. Ceaser has been adopted and is living his best life in the Northeast United States where he is loved unconditionally.
Michonne was adopted as a small puppy from MCAS in 2013. Early 2017 she found herself back at MCAS and she was heartworm positive and looked like she had not been treated well. Who Rescued Who stepped up to pull her and THF sponsored her heartworm treatment. Michonne will start her journey to Michigan to find her forever home on 7/31 and we can't wait to see pictures of her happily ending.
Valentine spent 14 weeks at MCAS. He got his big break when some kind volunteers brought him to an off site adoption event and could not bare to bring him back to the shelter. He became a THF Hopeful and Operation Pet Alive took him into their program. Valentine went through heartworm treatment and he has since found a family of his own in New England.
Naomi is a survivor. Her teeth tell us that she was likely kept on a chain and used her teeth to rip it off of her. She was pulled by Operation Pets Alive and treated by The Heartworm Foundation, then sent to Rhode Island in June of 2018 where she lives comfortably with her forever family.
