Skipper would love to skip right into your hearts! But first, HIS heart needs a little help.

Skipper has heartworms, a parasite transmitted from one infected dog to another dog by mosquitoes. If left untreated, these parasites fill the heart tissues, causing respiratory distress and ultimately fatality. We're so glad that we got Skipper before that happened!

Skipper needs:
- a quiet place to rest during treatment
- heartworm prevention to keep any new parasites from taking up residence in his heart
- a series of injections to address the parasites already living in his body

Can you help Skipper get the treatment he needs? Heartworm treatment costs $300, and we know that if we all pull together, we can raise that much! If you're able to help, please visit If you have questions, please email
