Beth came to Barks and Meows Rescue from a shelter on May 22 at the age of one. She was pregnant and heartworm positive. She was 15lbs and carrying 6 puppies. Unfortunately, she had to have a cesarean due to her small stature and to lessen the burden on her heart by no having to go through the labor process. The cost of this operation was $700. Two of the puppies did not survive. All pups were weaned by Mommy Beth and eventually adopted out. Now Beth is incurring her Heartworm treatment. It is a very invasive procedure but it is vital as the number of heartworms in her system is huge. The treatment is done over a two month period and then 6 months later, she will be tested to ensure she no longer has Heartworm. The cost of this treatment is $1,300.
All of the funds collected will be placed on our account at the Mt Brydges Animal Clinic as soon as possible. Your generosity will help us ensure that Mommy Beth's current needs are met and that she will remain healthy enough to be spayed. We are so very grateful for any help that you are able to assist us with. We are saving lives, one life at a time.
