During Winnie's heartworm X-ray the vet spotted a "U" shaped wire lodged in her chest that needed to be removed immediately.
Winnie is about 2 years old, 45 pounds, and a heart of gold. She was a stray at the Corsicana Shelter and was never claimed; an amazing volunteer at the shelter agreed to transport her to GRRALL to save her life. Winnie is great with people, dogs, and probably cats. The staff at the shelter all adored her and we are thrilled to have her join the GRRALL family.
Winnie is heartworm positive, but it is a low grade. She went to her foster home today where she will stay while she goes through heartworm treatment and heals from her surgery. Once her treatments are complete she will be able to find her forever home and live comfortably for the rest of her life.
You can make a huge difference in Winnie's life by donating toward her medical expenses and sending her a gift that will comfort her and give her hope while she is healing.
