Have a Heart Treatment Fund

Make a lifesaving difference for any dog suffering from Heartworms.
Help us meet our goal of $5,000 to provide vital treatment for 10 dogs currently at the Houston Humane Society who suffer from Heartworms.
 
The Houston Humane Society’s “Have a Heart Treatment Fund” was created to help cure the hundreds of amazing and sweet adoptable dogs that come into our adoption program that sadly suffer from heartworms.
 
Heartworm disease is a medical condition that only dogs get and is curable, if detected on time and treated appropriately. Due to Houston’s hot and humid climate, mosquitos breed almost year round and most dogs are at risk of getting bit, thus contracting heartworms, which is literally what it sounds like: worms in their heart.
 
A heartworm positive dog deserves the same chance to find their forever home, but can be at a disadvantage due to its heartworms as adopters do not have the monetary means to treat this curable disease. 
 
This is where your donation can make a difference! By donating to our “Have a Heart Treatment Fund”, you will increase the chances a heartworm positive dog gets adopted, and you also give him or her a stronger and healthier heart!
 
We ask you that you please have a heart and donate now to help us treat dogs that suffer from heartworm disease at our shelter. Now, if you fall in love with a particular dog in our adoptions program that has heartworms, you can make a specific donation to help sponsor his or her heartworm treatment directly. Just add the dogs name in the “In Honor” section on the giving page.
 
We have set up a fund specifically for our heartworm-positive dogs through Cuddly. Please consider donating today and healing the hearts of these dogs in need.
