Hi all! Thanks for your donations and great news! The SPCA is going to cover Viktors Heartworm treatments and all costs associated with it!!! See More


Viktor (previously Echo) was adopted by a wonderful man named Christian from the SPCA. Christian works at the SPCA, and the story of Viktor and Christian is a heart-warming one. Christian, an Army Veteran, had troubles finding work in the field he worked in the Army. Once discharged, Christian, his wife, 3 cats and Great Dane (Cyka) became homeless. They lived from their car for months. Working odd jobs and trying to make ends meet, in the end they just could not. Moving in with some friends here in TX, he was able to get a position with the SPCA of Brazoria County. Shortly upon working there, there came along a sweet yet scared dog they called "Echo". He was afraid and scared, becoming a "fear biter". Because of this, the SPCA couldn't allow "Echo" to be adopted. Christian fell in love with this dog. Instead of taking lunch or breaks like others, Christian took his extra time and worked with "Echo", to the point that people started to notice. Christian and, now Viktor, were featured on the SPCA Webpage about the simplicity of taking time and caring for animals and the impact it can have on even the most scared and timid dogs. Now that Viktor has been taken home and adopted by Christian, graciously given to him by the SPCA of BC for only $5, it has been discovered that Viktor has Heartworms and is going to need treatment. He will start his first 30 days on a small pill that will slow the growth of the heartworms, then he will need two overnight treatments of poison injections to kill the heartworms. This will take quite a bit of money, money that Christian doesn't have due to being homeless and in debt. He is still working at the SPCA, but at minimum wage. I wanted to set this page up to see if we can come together and help not only Christian (who has had a huge overcoming of his depression by having Viktor by his side everyday when he gets home), but help save Viktor's life. He needs this so badly. Anything will help, so if you can donate, please do so! If you want the links to the SPCA webpage that Christian and Viktor were featured on, I will provide it!!! Thank you, and GOD BLESS!
