   I have a young, female heartworm positive dog that I rescued from a very neglectful situation who needs the fast kill heartworm treatment!  This treatment is quite costly and I cannot afford it on my own after all the other money I have put into getting her (and her family) healthy.

Paco Taco and Momma Bonita

Background:  A few months ago a co-worker called me and asked me to come and rescue a family of chihuahuas that her neighbor was neglecting.  I am trying to run a make shift dog rescue.  We have rescued 15 dogs to date.  We have invested 3-4 thousand dollars of our own money into rescuing and healing these dogs.   The dogs I was called for were little chihuahuas that  had been chained up outside 24/7 and left out in the elements.  They did not receive vet care and had not been spayed or neutered.  Hence, Momma Bonita ended up having a litter of puppies.  The backyard breeder found out how it isn't the instant "cha-ching" profit that everyone thinks it is.  I went in and rescued the mom and dad dog along with 4 puppies.  A thousand dollars later, all the dogs had seen the vet, been given medications, and started on their way to healing. Momma dog was spayed and daddy dog was neutered also.   I was able to find homes for all four puppies but the momma and daddy dog stayed with me.  Momma Bonita tested heartworm positive and I had been trying the slow kill process as that is all I could afford after all the other bills.  Bonita recently got very sick and we took her to the vet which resulted in a $350 vet bill.  The vet then scolded me for not getting her the heartworm treatment in that time.  I explained that my husband lost his job and is a disable vet and that being a teacher does not bring in much income.  I have been able to keep all the dogs on heartworm preventative which is also costly but I need to get enough money to get her the fast kill treatment for heartworms. The sooner I can get her the heartworm treatment the less damage that will be done to her internal organs by these parasites.
