Meet Puddles, a very friendly 6 year old Boston Terrier which we saved from a high kill shelter.  He has only one eye, but he came that way, so we have no idea how he lost his eye.  Unfortunately it could have been through neglect as we have also discovered he is heartworm positive. 

Louie's Legacy treats 20-30 heartworm positive dogs per year, however this one is in the NYC area, which means treatment costs are much higher than in other areas of the country.  Our goal is $1200 as that is the typical fee for the public, though we expect it will be a bit LESS once we receive the estimate with our discount.  We will update our goal at that time.

Heartworm is a slow moving but deadly disease if left untreated.  The treatment is costly and we hope sharing Puddles' Fundrazr campaign will help remind the community of the relatively LOW COST of heartworm preventative.  The disease is found all over the country, INCLUDING in the northeast.  Please put your pets on prevention year round!

 

Puddles has been a perfect gentleman in his foster home and will make someone a wonderful pet once he is healthy.  Once started the quarantine period is generally 4-6 weeks.  Following completion of his treatment, quarantine and medical release, he will be available for adoption in Staten Island, NY!

 

Your contribution will not only help Puddles, but will help all of the other animals who will then have our other funds available for their care.  Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501 c 3 non-profit and your donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Thank you all for your continued support!

 

**Update: Our vet has just let us know his bill should not exceed $500!  Great news!  Please keep sharing, we can raise this money quickly!
