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 suffer from heartworms.
Heartworm disease is a medical condition that curable. 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 a forever home, like those that aren’t HW Positive. Their condition puts them at a disadvantage due to its treatment cost as some adopters do not have the monetary means to treat this curable disease.
GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE
We need your help to give dogs like the ones below a second chance at a new life and get them adopted. By donating to our “Have a Heart Treatment Fund”, you help increase the chances of a heartworm-positive dog getting adopted, and you also give them a stronger and healthier heart! This is where your donation can make a difference!
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 dog’s Animal ID (Located under their name) in the “In Honor” section on the giving page.

0-22 lbs. - $200
23-39 lbs. - $275
40-79 lbs. - $350
80-100 lbs. - $400
*Here at the Houston Humane Society, we want to help our adopters and adoptable animals as best as we can by offering the lowest price to adopters for heartworm treatment.
