On Saturday, Project Precious pulled a young poodle mix (we think maybe "labradoodle" or "schnoodle" type) from a busy municipal shelter in CT. He was so badly matted that we could not tell his breed when we pulled him. We spent a total of four hours over two days shaving him down and getting him clean and comfortable. In his mats we found dead bugs, old chewing gum, sticks and more, and beneath it all he had several small cuts and wounds.

Once we had him all cleaned up, we were ready to have him neutered and transitioned into a foster home. We were so excited for little 8-10 month old Jeffrey!! Sadly, his neuter never happened because his blood work came up heartworm positive.

We are all heartbroken that this little sweet heart will have to undergo stressful and difficult heartworm treatment in order to save his life. He will need a series of deep injections over a period of months, and after each injection he will require strict crate rest and monitoring.

Heartworm treatment is quite expensive, even with our discount, and we are in need of support for Jeffrey.

He will be having his treatments done at Bulls Head Pet Hospital in Stamford, CT where one of our co-directors works and can actively take part in his care. If you'd like to donate to our bill directly, please call them at (203) 324-5711 and specify that is it for Jeffrey under Project Precious Rescue.

Jeffrey will also be in need of a loving, calm, patient foster home to help him recover from his wounds, his treatment, and the neglect he has faced throughout his puppyhood.

Through all he has been through, Jeffrey remains a sweet, silly, happy dog. He melts our hearts with every wag and kiss, and he truly wants love from everyone he meets, including other dogs and kitties. He deserves every chance we can give him and more.
