The Joshua Fund Dog Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

We use donations for dogs in our program with heartworm disease.

Ninety percent of the adult dogs we rescue are heartworm-positive. We use donations to help with the cost of the treatment.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Most of the adult dogs we rescue are heartworm-positive. Erika is just one of the dogs who come to us with flea and tick complications; some have been over-bred and most are in very poor condition. In addition to giving them standard medical care, we treat them for heartworm disease. This adds greatly to the cost of medical care, plus the six to eight weeks the dogs spend in boarding until they are totally healthy. Erika recovered from bad infections, severe anemia and heartworm treatment. She was recently adopted by a loving forever family!
