Heartworm care for Punky

Hello Everyone,

This beautiful little lady, along with another small male, was abandoned by her owner in front of my house on 2/9/2020. The owner pulled to the end of my road, tossed the dogs out of the car and left. I noticed only a few minutes later that they had been abandoned. After an hour or so of persuasion, I managed to get both dogs to come to me. They were both scared, but they ended up being very sweet. I originally thought that they were both females, and one of them was pregnant. It turns out that the one I thought was pregnant was actually a male with serious health issues and fluid in his abdomen. I affectionately named them Rex and Spunky before taking them to the vet.

I brought both dogs to the veterinarian in the morning, and unfortunately, Rex had some serious health issues and had to be put down. He was very calm and collected in his final moments, but I could tell that he was in pain. I sat on the floor with him and held him in his final moments before he was put to sleep. It seemed like he could tell that I was sad, and he was comforting me more than I was comforting him. I only knew him for about twelve hours, but he was so incredibly sweet that I can't imagine who would abandon him.

The doctor later told me that Spunky had tested positive for heartworms and requires further treatment. Between the heartworm treatments for Spunky and the cost of veterinary services for both Spunky and to humanely euthanize Rex, my total expenses will come up to around $1,250. I am asking for your help in covering the expenses with the immediate and unexpected costs of vet bills plus the heartworm treatments. Please help me give this little lady another chance, because she is so incredibly sweet and adorable and she desperately needs your help.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this and please consider helping me help her live a full life.
