More heartworm positive dogs saved thanks to Pepsi

We are now up to 27 dogs saved with the help of the 5,000.00 grant I was awarded in March thru the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project. This includes 82 lb Leo, a chocolate lab turned into the SPCA when his owners divorced. This put a huge burden on Lab Rescue of Southeast Rescue, so I was very happy to provide his treatment.
Today in the CyFair section of the paper Valerie Sweeten of the Houston Chronicle did a nice story
on the cause and mentioned Chestnut Animal Hospital. Dr Snyder and her staff have aided me TREMENDOUSLY since 1986 in my rescue efforts. Chestnut Rehab is a separate 501 (c)(3) nonprofit
that has been handling the drug needed to treat the Pepsi dogs and have graciously offered to extend
additional help. Donations are tax deductible and 100% is used for treating the dogs with immiticide.
Very few nonprofits can make that statement.
Houston is the number one market for the use of the drug Immiticide. Instead of that horrendous statistic, I would like Houston to be the number one user for the use of PREVENTION.

This is Chicken, saved by heartworm treatment and adopted! He got his name because his bark sounds just like a chicken..
