Welcome to our NEW site!
2020 HAS BEEN A RECORD BREAKING YEAR FOR ADOPTIONS!
Yes, due to COVID-19 more people are home and everyone wants a dog or an additional dog. Some rescue groups overlook the heartworm positive dogs because the treatment, while very effective, is rather expensive -- especially in Northern NJ where we are located.
We have a vet who has generously discounted the treatment but most of them average about $2000 a dog.
Shy is one dog currectly going through heartworm treatment. She was surrendered into a shelter ill with her brother Big Boy. They were a bonded pair. Everyone said her brother was dog aggressive, so since these large dogs were a bonded pair with issues the shelter was going to put them both down! Fast forward we were able to get them adopted together! We had a wonderful foster family who worked with a trainer ( Jerome Watson) to help them be good on a leash ( being pulled by an 85 pound dog is not fun.). And we are currently paying for Shy's heartworm treatment. And the pair is so happy in their county home!!!
In additon to Shy below are some photos of the dogs who are in need of the heartworm treatment or have recently completed it. These are all dogs who would have more been overlooked!
November 14, 2020 - there are about five dogs we have yet to put through the heartworm treatment so we really would appreciate your support. Any amount big or small would be very helpful. It could be a monthly donation or a seasonal one. But either way it's all good because these dogs LOVE YOU for caring!! Thank you!
