Warrick Animal Guardians has been called on once again to help a dumped dog in need. Dumping animals in Warrick County has always been a problem. However, recently it seems that there has been an increase in frequency. Beagles and Coonhounds seem to be the most likely breeds in our area that get dumped. Over half of these dogs test positive for heartworms. Gretchen an English Coonhound was a sad case. She was dumped in a far region of the county and in bad shape. She had blood on her, a huge mass on her throat, and was limping. She seemed very old. Once she came back to the animal control facility she was tested for heartworms and sadly she was positive. This gal seemed like she had a rough past.
She needed help with funding to get her seen ASAP. Warrick Animal Guardians donors have come through on her first leg...She has been spayed and had her mass removal done. You can see a picture of her recovering in a foster home. She is doing well thus far. But the next step is to raise the funds for her heartworm treatment. She is currently getting medications and her treatment will begin soon if we can get it covered.
WAG appreciates the continued support of the animals in Warrick County. Without you we couldn’t continue to save as many animals as we do and reduce the euthanasia rate at our local animal control facility. Thank you!
