Sarah is a 2 year old yellow girl, daughter of a dog who was dropped off at a local shelter with two of her offspring by their breeder because they could no longer be taken care of. Sarah was adopted on October 8, but was not tested for heartworm before the adoption. She was however scheduled to be spayed on November 11. A few days before this appointment, Sarah's humans received a call telling them that Sarah's sister had tested positive for heartworm, and she was to be brought back in for testing. Unfortunately, Sarah's tests were also positive.
The surgery and heartworm treatment had not been completed due to finances... The day of Sarah's adoption her new human family had spent a significant amount of money on the medical bills for their Border Collie - who went to be bridge to ease her pain. Those costs had made the costs associated with Sarah's heartworm treatment beyond their capabilities. As the family had already grown very attached to Sarah, and this treatment was essential to her future, they approached Labrador Life Line for assistance with the costs of treatment.
Thank you from Labrador Life Line - and from Sarah and her new human family. Your support is how we are able to assist with the treatment costs needed by dogs like Sarah, so that they can go on to have a happy life.
