Bear came to us recently with his brother, Peanut, they were owner surrenders. The owner was an elderly gentleman who was walking with a cane now and could not care for his beloved pets any longer. Bear and Peanut had come to him as a young puppies and are now going on 10 years old and weigh 97 lbs. and 91 lbs., respectfully. They are good companion dogs and would love to get a new home together if possible.

We discovered in our vetting of Bear that he is heart worm positive and has a secondary infection going on, probably from bad teeth. He needs treatment for heart worms at a cost of $352 plus antibiotics at a cost of $52.80, teeth cleaning and extracting one bad tooth of $95 and once all of this is done and he is healthy we will neuter him at a cost of $70. So about $570 will be the cost and that does not include the other normal costs for getting a dog healthy and ready for adoption. Please consider helping us help Bear and donate for his cause.
