How many pets did this grant help?


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

These Poms came to us with heartworm disease and the grant enabled us to get them the treatment they needed. They have since recovered and been adopted. Starlit (first photo) is 6 years old and 7 lbs. She was left in an abandoned home to starve and when she arrived here she was just 5 lbs, just a skeleton. She holds no grudges and is a very loving affectionate girl. She tested a very low positive for heartworms but because of her small size, it was decided it was best to do the slow kill with Heartgard. We expect she will test negative in less than a year.

Tesla (second photo) is 5-6 years old and weighs 8 lbs. She was a stray at the Garland shelter. A super sweet little girl with lots of personality, she would make a great lap dog or walking partner. Her favorite activities include sleeping, eating, getting some love and going for walks.
