More happy endings due to heartworm treatments

This is Jupiter, a darling 5 year old terrier mix, maybe a huge 8 lbs. He is being treated for heartworms
Posted by Picasathru a shelter.

This stunning beauty is 5 year old Franchesca, also maybe 8 lbs. After a little bout with kennel cough, she
 is scheduled thru a shelter to be waited on like royalty at Rover Oaks Katy during her treatment.I normally do not show pictures of dogs before they are available for adoption, but I wanted to show just 2 of the many, many dogs in Houston with heartworms and
how many more we could be saving.  There are many more that breed specific rescue groups have taken in that need treating as well.  

The Pepsi grant I was awarded has allowed more dogs to be treated, especially bigger dogs that are normally too expensive to treat.(Sheltie Sanctuary and Golden Beginnings, you have been a delight to help!) That 5,000.00 funding is winding down, with 20 dogs treated so far, so
I am looking for other sources so this life saving work can continue.
Chestnut Rehab is a 501(c)(3) non profit connected to (but scrupulously separate from)  Chestnut Animal Hospital in Bellaire, Tx.
It is a bare bones operation, 100% of any donation is not only tax deductible, but the Rehab
keeps costs as low as possible. It is not intended to do mass rescue but help in small ways and
heartworm treatments are a huge way to  help without depleting Rehabs staff and operations.
Your donation will help both shelter and rescue group dogs.
Donations (with the notation "heartworm treatments") can be mailed to Chestnut Rehab,
4834 Chestnut
Bellaire, Tx 77401

Chestnut Animal Hospital has helped me in rescue since 1986. Dr Sandra Snyder, her vet staff
and techs and receptionists and especially office manager Tina have been incredible to me over the years.
