Misti is a sweet girl and she needs your help. Misti had attained a typical doggy dream. She was rescued and made healthy. She then went to a loving home with an owner who adored her. Things were not completely as they seemed. Though he loved her he didn't really have the time for her. we started getting calls about Misti wandering the neighborhood running free. There was a real concern that she might get hit by a car or injured in some other way. We finally made the hard decision to go ahead and have her come back to the rescue as it was the safest place for her. Once back with us she was healthy and happy. She got a foster home and she continue to blossom. Unfortunately we quickly learned that she was heartworm positive now. A little medication given monthly would have prevented this. We have to give her this costly treatment to get her completely back to normal and healthy. We have started her on anabiotic?s and steroids and will be starting her treatment soon but we need your help to be able to afford to do it. Any little bit helps. Misti is depending on you. 


  • Misty is doing so well in her foster home.  We know she missed the first owner but she has really adjusted well and opened up.  She is healthy and happy.  She is very loving and at 55 pounds she thinks she is a lap dog.  We have the steroids and the antibiotics ready to start her treatment but there is nothing we can do until we have enough to pay the vet for the full treatment.  She will have to go to the vet for the injection of the medication and spend the night for monitoring.  Then she has to be on kennel rest for 6 weeks while the medications kill the parasites.  Then another injection with an overnight stay and more kennel rest.  Finally, she will have a repeat heartworm test to be sure all the worms have been killed.  Then she can be adopted.  She has a long, long road ahead and she can't make the first step without your help.
