One of our volunteers saw a post about a young pup who had been found wandering the streets. She was picked up by the animal shelter and was set to be euthanized since they were out of space and nobody had claimed her. Our volunteer saw something in this sweet girl and had to save her.  Our vet checked her out and said that she had one of the most advanced cases of heartworms he had ever seen in a dog her age.  Treatment was hard on her, but with great medical care and a legion of folks to love on her and watch over her, Ava is 100% heartworm free and ready to find her forever home.
