Saving a Heart
The Heartworm Fund was started by a group of volunteers challenged with the slow pace of heartworm positive dog adoptions. Heartworm disease is treatable, but at a significant cost, and can sometimes run up to $500. Potential adopters were reluctant to take on this burden for a pet they hadn't developed a relationship with. As a result wonderful dogs like Devin pictured waited too long for forever homes. This perfect two year old cocker spaniel mix was heartworm positive, but thankfully adopted from the Louisiana SPCA in part to our great volunteers and the Heartworm Fund. Our volunteers decided to make a difference for dogs like Devin.
