Oscar was rescued by Operation Paws for Homes, he was pulled off the adoption floor at the ACAS.  This rescue thought they were pulling a heart worm negative dog.  On retesting of Oscar we have found out he is heart worm positive.  Oscar cannot ... More ...

Hearing our plea that the adoption floor was over crowded at the Aiken County Animal Shelter.  The director did NOT want to have to make the hard decision to euthanize adoptable dogs because of space issues.  Operation Paws for Homes adopted 3 dogs one week then 4 more dogs 2 weeks later.  

This rescue is constantly helping us move adoptable dogs out of this shelter.  It is with their unwavering help to us that we have been able to lower the kill stats for this shelter.  This Rescue was hoping to be able to do this for Oscar here.  

He was set to leave to his rescue this friday June 20,2014.  Now he cannot.  He was tested with what is called a 4dx test.  What the 4dx test does is retest for heartworms and also tick borne diesease.  Although his test was negative for the tick borne diesease he did test positive for the heart worm diesease.  So just to be extra cautious we had him retested at the CSRA lifesaver in Grantiville just to be sure he was positive for Heartworms.  The results are Yes, he is Heart worm positive.  We are stunned at this situation.

 We need help raising the money to treat Oscar's condition.  Rescue's cannot with stand paying out of pocket for these medical treatments.  

We were offered the option of returning him to the shelter to get another dog in his place.   We cannot do that.   It is not fair to him.  Can you help us get the funds up so we can get him the treatment he requires.   

To add to this mess.  Rose, one of the four dogs that was adopted also retested for heartworm diesease.  So that is two heartworm dogs that this rescue needs help with.

Cost of treatment  Heartworm Treatment $375.00

                             Medical Boarding        $180.00
