Our dog, Lily was recently diagnosed with Heartworms and needs medical attention.

In 2010 I decided that our home was missing something and I begged Alex for a dog. Because there is never a "good time" to adopt a pet, the idea made its way to the back burner. On February 1, 2011, I came home on my lunch break to find a sick little dog underneath our back steps. She followed me up to our back porch where I gave her some water and food. I went back to work and hoped she would still be there when I got home. Alex made it home before I did that day and he took her in. He instantly fell in love and she has been with us since. When I got home from work I asked Alex, "What do you think her name is?" He said matter-of-factly, "Lily." While she has only been in our home a short time, we have already become a family.

Because she was so weak and we had no history on her, I decided to take her to the vet for safe measure. We were informed by our vet that Lily has heart worms, making it difficult for her to put on weight, play and run.

As new dog owners, we were not prepared for the $500.00 in medical bills it was going to cost to return Lily to health. Please donate if you can. Every little bit helps! Lily has truly transformed the way we live our lives. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you for your generosity!
