Summary

ARF of MS, the largest no-kill rescue in Mississippi is working on treating over 50 dogs for heartworms. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in companion animals. One single mosquito bite can infect an otherwise healthy dog and while a single monthly prevention is available, most intakes into our facility are heartworm positive, requiring expensive and lengthy treatment. Left untreated, serious long lasting damage can occur affecting kidneys, heart and quality of life

Challenge

We have so many wonderful dogs with homes waiting for them but they must be treated for heartworm disease prior to being adopted. We are solely supported by donations, we have no fairy godmother, nor do we have a rich uncle. Sigh. Therefore, we must raise money for each and every step of the way in this world of rescue. We have had a slowdown of income from lack of being able to host events and because donors having reduced income due to Covid.

Solution

By being able to provide these dogs the last step of health, they will be able to leave the life of resident dog in a shelter to family member in a home. This will additionally free up space for us to rescue more in need of our help in getting them off the street and into shelter and health.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact is these dogs will become a member of a family providing unconditional love and companionship, and be restored to full health. We will also be able to rescue more from the streets of homelessness and neglect. A successful community cares for all segments of society, including dogs and cats.
