VERY SAD NEWS ABOUT AJ
This morning we received the terrible news that AJ had passed away from complications during heartworm treatment. All of us volunteers are absolutely devasted by this news. We want to thank everyone who tried to help him. We do know that he was able to experience the love he deserved thanks to "Uncle Joe" who took him in when no one else would. If you would like to make a donation in memory of AJ to help save another heartworm positive dog, we would welcome any assistance. Please everyone, put your pups on heartworm preventative so that this won't happen to any other precious soul (you can get pills for around $10 a month). We are desperately seeking foster homes for our other heartworm positive dogs so that they can be treated as soon as possible. Many of our dogs have sponsor money available and the only thing they are waiting for is a foster home. Every day they wait, the worms are growing and causing further damage to their hearts. Call Allison at 901-240-9848 or Lisa at 901-826-0282 if you can help. AJ's long time buddy, Autumn, is still looking for a forever home.
