To the Rescue: Lila
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn —
Many animal shelters around the country have to euthanize dogs with heart-worms, but not the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga.
Lila is a German-Shepherd mix living at the Humane Educational Society. This 2-year-old dog loves attention and playing.
Lila does have heart-worms and has not yet gone through treatment. Heart-worm treatment is extremely expensive--sometimes up to $500 per dog.
The Humane Educational Society is currently working to raise funds to get all of their heart-worm positive dogs treatment.
If you cannot adopt a dog but want to help an animal with heart-worms, you can donate to the Humane Educational Society.
