Pepsi Refresh Project helps more Houston heartworm positive dogs

In the last 2 days 8 more dogs have gone thru partial or complete heartworm treatment, thanks to the 5,000.00 grant awarded by Pepsi. This is Penny and Rex above. Wanda and Sasha  also received
their first shot of the long treatment, they will get 2 more shots in 30 days. Donna Reed (The vet  on this dog is so young she didn't know who Donna Reed was:) and Owen received their first shots as well.
Gypsy is a not only beautiful, but SO well behaved, shy Golden Retriever mix. She completed her treatment
today. She did not want her picture taken, but I will get one to post because she is such a nice dog.

All of these dogs are in all volunteer foster homes with different groups and will be available for adoption
after their treatment. All are already altered and current on vaccines including Rabies.
Pet Stuff Resale is  donating all of the gas to get the dogs and get  to the various vet clinics.
A little under half of the grant has been used at this point.  A big hound, 4 dachshunds and a little shy terrier
I am fostering, Savannah, are next.
Thank you Pepsi Refresh Project and all of you voters!
