Heart worm positive 2 year old dog needs treatment i cannot afford. please dont let her die

rescued 2 year old female dog that i got friday i found out saturday that she has heartworms. we took her in and shes obviously a stray and been neglected (flea and tick infested, scars, etc) and not fed (you can see every rib)

she fits in great with the family and we had rescued a stray a few years ago that had heartworms and we did the treatment to save his life and it was anywhere from $700-900 (varies due to pre-treatment tests/xrays etc) dollars to treat and cure. she is farther along in the disease so she is rapidly getting worse for a young dog but savable.

shes a breed that my county will put down even if she is healthy but since she is heartworm positive not even no kill shelters will take her. i do love this dog and want to keep her but i do not have the $900 this time like i did the dog beforehand.

cheaper treatment that is the shot is like 50-75% success rate AT BEST. the one i want to do is 100%. there is always people that just medicate and wait for them (the worms) to die off but then the worms are damaging their heart and lungs till they die 2 years later. my other dog wasnt as far along an had heart and lung damage so there is no waiting or doing the cheap route in my opinion.

i always rescue my pets from abused or abandoned situations and can afford them but was not expecting to get another dog and you dont expect this to happen. i cant put her down i dont have the heart. i lost a dog to old age last year and it devastated me to put her down when it had to be done.

please help. any amount of money would be a huge help. the vet does not do a payment plan so i need it quick to start her asap.
