Last Hope has 3 Heartworm Positive Dogs, Needing Foster-to-Adopt Homes.

Last Hope has 3 Heartworm Positive Dogs, Needing Foster-to-Adopt Homes.
Yes, Heartworm is Heartbreaking, especially if not treated.?
MATILDA is a surprise HW+ dog, while ROSALEE & KATANA came to Last Hope because of their need for heartworm treatment.
Each dog will do best in a Foster-to-Adopt Home while she undergoes treatment to rid her of deadly heartworm. These pups should be kept calm after each immiticide treatment to prevent a pulmonary embolism while the insidious heartworms dissolve.
?Last Hope pays for the diagnostic tests, heartworm treatment & all vet care until the dog is done with hw treatment & the adoption is finalized.. We are still monitoring further testing until the dog is declared heartworm- free.?
?MATILDA is the surprise diagnosis. She is about 2 yr old. This Lab/Hound lost her first home in Georgia when a young couple had a baby, and there wasn’t enough room in their apartment for a dog & a newborn. She lost her Last Hope home under sad circumstances. Her new Dad was diagnosed with a different, serious illness & must withstand treatments himself.
MATILDA is sweet but energetic & picky about other dogs.
?ROSALEE a petite sweet Beagle has endured so much in her young life. She is about 4 yr old & only 20 lbs.
We knew she was heartworm positive when we chose her to come to Last Hope from Kentucky to be healed before she sought a home.
But we didn’t know she was already suffering from a pyometra, an infection of the uterus.  She was spayed there too.
ROSALEE is a tiny doll…only seeking love & attention. She must finished her antibiotics for her pyometra infection.
ROSALEE loves other dogs, but must be kept low key.
?KATANA is a 1 yr old Pitty mix about 45 lbs. She was a stray in Georgia & had no chance of getting the lifesaving treatment there. She adores people and also likes other dogs.
*If you can see it in your heart to foster- to-adopt or merely foster any of these 3 HW+ dogs, please contact Letty at
*And just a reminder, make sure your own dogs are up-to-date on Heartworm testing & Heartworm preventives…infected mosquitoes bite long & short haired dogs alike.
