This fundraising page is designed to raise money to cover our monthly heartworm preventative expenses for the dogs currently in the care of Take Me Home Pet Rescue.
We spend approximately $300 per month on heartgard (monthly heartworm preventative given to each of the dogs currently available for adoption). That adds up to $3600 per year so we're really hoping to find folks to sponsor one dog each month by making a $10 donation.
Of course any time we take in an adult dog it's like playing the lottery and unfortunately the odds are typically against us as most of the dogs are heartworm positive. Dogs contract heartworm via a mosquitoe bite. A lot of them are strays so they didn't have anyone giving them monthly preventative meds. Please talk to your vet to learn more about heartworms and if you live somewhere like Texas please make sure your dog is on a monthly preventative all year round!
If a dog is heartworm positive, we put him/her through treatment which costs hundreds of dollars. These dogs make a full recovery and then go on the monthly preventative and go on to live long, happy lives! Your donations help enable us to save more dogs in need, thank you for your support! We are a 501c3 and will send you a tax receipt.
