Cooper, formally known as “James” is a 2-3 year old Leonberger mix dog. I found him on & when I learned he was listed on an "Urgent Dog” list, (meaning he could have been euthanized at any time), I took action quick. My family & I are located out of Birmingham, Al & we made the 2 1/2 hour trip to Georgia to rescue Cooper from an animal control shelter. I fell in love with him as soon as I met him. His story is he was just a stray nobody wanted. ‘James’ was his shelter name, but we think he’s more of a Cooper! Cooper is currently still at the shelter where he is having his shots updated, being neutered & having a micro-chip inserted into his ear. I will travel back to Georgia on 4/24 to bring him home!

Unfortunately the shelter did alert me that Cooper has tested positive for heartworms. It is treatable, but VERY expensive. Heartworm treatment is challenging for an animal. There are different degrees of heartworm infestation, ranging from light positive to strongly positive. In the most severe cases, the dog will need to undergo two treatment sessions of medications that are similar to treatment for cancer It could cost anywhere from $400-$2,000 dollars! This is a TON of money for me & my little family. We have already been drained from the trips to meet & adopt him as well as the adoption fee & neuter surgery. Sadly if he is not treated he could die.

I’ve set up this donation page for the public to be able to help Cooper get the treatment he needs & deserves! We can’t WAIT to bring this sweet boy home & give him all the love he has never experienced.

Please consider making a donation to help offset the costs of Cooper’s treatment. Any donation you can give would be SUCH a blessing! $20, $10 – even $1!
