911 – Rescue Needed! Good Karma has taken on a high load of medical cases in the past several weeks. Many of these medical cases were surprises to us.

Currently, ¼ of the dogs in our very small rescue are medical cases.

First, we have Leo. Leo was surrendered to a shelter in Texas when his owner moved to assisted living. He was so badly matted that we couldn’t tell if he was neutered or not. We discovered that his teeth were in horrific condition, and Leo needed extensive dental work. This dental work was over $2400.

We also have SIX heartworm positive dogs: Heartworm is so easily preventable, but so expensive to treat. Treatment is not only hard on the dog, but costly in terms of dollars and length of stay. Every heartworm positive dog must stay in foster care for months while they go through their treatment.

Because of the costs and length of treatment involved, many rescues will not save dogs who are heartworm positive or seniors who need extensive dental work. But Good Karma knows they deserve the same chance at life that every other dog does. We know that they don’t deserve to die because humans failed them.

At an average of $800 per dog JUST for heartworm treatment (not including any other veterinary needs like spay/neuter, dentals, or anything else needed), and a dental procedure that cost over $2400, a caseload of this size can destroy our finances in a matter of weeks.

Your donation today will help us cover the costs of treatment for these sweet souls and ensure that they WILL have their happy beginnings with new families very soon!

Good Karma is a 501(c)3 organization, Federal EIN 46-1838121. Thank you for your support.

The hits just keep on coming. Yesterday Daisy went in for a spay, and we discovered she is also heartworm positive.

Good Karma retests EVERY dog that arrives in our rescue. Yes, they all get heartworm tested before they come to our rescue (we save them regardless, but when we know ahead of time, we can plan for this).

Most shelters perform a standard, low cost heartworm test. But, we don't trust those tests! We have a 4DX test run on every dog we receive to confirm heartworm status and test for tick-borne diseases.

This is the cost of high standards. We could easily accept the heartworm test results we are given, but our standard of care dictates that we raise the bar and take things a step further.

We are NOT adjusting our goal amount in spite of having another surprise heartworm dog, because we are struggling to reach our initial goal. But please know, your donation is very much appreciated and needed. <3 Thank you for your ongoing support!
Daisy is also heartworm positive.
