Miss Tilly, January, 2002
Another of our early 2002 dogs is Miss Tilly, a black female about 7 years old from California. Miss Tilly, who had one of the saddest faces we've ever seen, was heartworm positive and had been held in a shelter for more than a month when we were contacted for help by a shelter volunteer. Tilly could not be adopted in her present condition so treatment was critical to her future. A foster family was available, however, if Miss Tilly received help.
The LABMED Board voted to fund Tilly's treatment, which she handled very well. Her vet offered a rescue discount, too. She has now been released to rescue and is on her way to full recovery. Miss Tilly will be ready for her forever home soon.
Heartworm disease is one of the most easily preventable. If you live in an area where heartworms flourish, make sure your dog is given preventive medication on a regular schedule.
