THE STORY:

Dooley was dumped with us. Upon giving him a Wellness exam he tested VERY HIGH for Heart-worms and must now receive Treatment immediately or he could lose his life! Please help us raise the money needed to pay the Vet care for this loving dog that was dumped by his owners without a second thought!

Heartworm disease is a serious disease that results in severe lung disease, heart failure, other organ damage, and death in pets, mainly dogs, cats, and ferrets. It is caused by a parasitic worm called Dirofilaria immitis. The worms are spread through the bite of a mosquito. The dog is the definitive host, meaning that the worms mature into adults, mate, and produce offspring while living inside a dog. The mosquito is the intermediate host, meaning that the worms live inside a mosquito for a short transition period in order to become infective (able to cause heartworm disease). The worms are called heartworms because the adults live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of an infected animal.
