HPAN Helps Rid Dixie of Heartworms

Dixie was one of the most overlooked dogs at Roane County Animal Shelter. She was scared, confused, and heartbroken. She would stay in the back of her kennel, and honestly, no one ever noticed her. The Animal Wellness Foundation immediately pulled her into rescue. They knew Dixie needed a little extra TLC time before heading to Buffalo, NY to rescue. She was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection, possible signs of pneumonia, and she is heartworm positive. She’s now ready for her heartworm treatment at Volunteer Vet Hospital, but the rescue has only $200 left and her treatment is $350. We kicked in the additional $150 needed.
