We need help to get Bella's heartworm treatment! We plan to start the slow treatment next week, the money will pay for her treatment and upkeep for however many months it takes! More ...

Bella is a beautiful border collie mix who was brought to the shelter with her 8 three week old puppies.  She was skin and bones and her bio read surrendered because couldn't afford

When we passed her cage she picked up a puppy, held it up and pleaded with us to stop and look.  Who could resist?  Bella and her little family came home with us!

Unfortunately 3 of the smallest puppies died of unknown causes.  We had had them parvo tested before bringing them home, so that wasn't the cause.  Her other 5 puppies have grown into fat, loving little butterballs!  They are all adopted, reserved, and going to new loving homes on November 8.

Three weeks later, the pups are almost finishing being weaned.  Bella has gained weight, she's loving and gentle, she has received all her shots and yesterday she was spayed in hopes of going up for adoption.  When we went to pick her up we were told the news-she did great, she's now spayed, but she is heartworm positive.

We are going to start treatment next week when we return to the vet's for the puppies' health exam.  We are working out a plan to schedule her treatment.  We have figured out the cost to include treatment, food and whatever it takes to get her on the safer, slow treatment,

Thank you, everyone for your support!!
