CSRA Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Heartworm treatment for Scarlett.

Heartworms are very prevalent in the Southeast. We took in a pretty, friendly, affectionate pit bull this summer, but she unfortunately had heartworms, which we treat prior to making the pet available for adoption.

How many pets did this grant help?

One dog.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Scarlett is a super-friendly pit bull-mix female dog. She came to us this summer, but she had heartworms. This disease is so easily prevented, but sadly, many dog guardians fail to keep their dogs on preventatives. Scarlett was treated by one of our local vets who helps out. Even with a discount, her treatment cost our shelter over $1,000. Every donation toward her treatment helps, and we were thankful to receive the Petfinder Foundation grant.
