The recent heatwave gave 7 lovely young ladies the idea to set up a lemonade stand so they could raise some money for charity. We can’t thank Erin, Bryn, Kristen, Kelly, Michaela, Jodi & Jenna enough for serving up some tall cold cups of sweet lemonade on a very hot day and donating the $68 they earned to help our pups!

We still hear from a lot of people that they don’t give their pets Heartworm preventative and may not even have them tested for it believing it “only affects dogs that live down south.” Simply put: they’re wrong. Heartworm disease, which is transmitted by the bite of a mosquito that has bitten an infected dog/cat/coyote/ferret/fox/wolf, has been diagnosed in all 50 states.
Most (if not all) rescues in this area pull dogs from southern shelters where heartworm is prevalent and, while we test dogs prior to transport, it can take 6-7 months from the time of infection until a dog will have a positive test result. That means a dog can test negative when it first comes into care locally but test positive at a later date which is one of the reasons we recommend that our adopters not only maintain the dogs they adopt from us on year-round preventatives (which can help kill the immature heartworms and sterilize adults) but that they also have their dogs re-tested for heartworm approximately 6 months after they had their first negative test and then follow the routine testing schedule recommended by their veterinarian.
The best defense is a good offense so, to protect your furbaby. Talk to your vet about Heartworm testing & the importance of using Heartworm preventatives
