“We’ve had a rough start from neglect and abuse, but we’re safe, warm, and loved now. Our friends at GDFRL are going to help us get healthy too!”
The medical cases below are cases for which we need help to pay for medical bills. They vary in severity from deadly heart worms to urgent injuries requiring surgery. Each dog has been evaluated by veterinarians and will get their happy ending! They will all go on to live normal, comfortable lives, but the expenses to get them there can be steep. All donations are tax-deductible.
Quinn & Nala
Heart worms are a HUGE problem in the area we cover! But yet if a dog is kept on prevention is is a disease that is easily preventable. We get so many Danes in that have not had the medical attention or care they deserve and as a result many are heart worm positive.
Right now, Quinn and Nala both have heartworms, and they are expensive to treat! We NEED your help! The cost for treatment per dog is about $1500 and both these Danes also need to be spayed and neutered once healthy enough which is another added expense.
It is very expensive to treat, but we will treat each and every one that comes into our care. But we need your help! We are funded solely by donations. This Valentines Day buy a heart, and save a heart! Do it for yourself or buy one as a gift for someone else. Either way you get to post a picture of your choice and help us help our Danes!
So…buy a heart…and SAVE a heart! You can also make a separate donation via our YouCaring widget toward the bottom of this page if you prefer. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Heartworms are deadly. And here in the Southeastern region of the U.S. they are especially common because they are transmitted by mosquitoes. Very frequently, adult dogs come into our rescue with heartworms because their previous owners did not give them monthly heartworm prevention. It then falls to GDFRL to have them treated because we pledge to see to all the medical needs of dogs in our care.
Heartworms may not seem urgent, but they are! They infest the heart and blood vessels of the lungs which gradually kills animals. There are a couple of different treatment methods, and, together with our veterinarians, we choose whichever is most appropriate for a dog on an individual basis. Both options generally cost us no less than $500 per dog, and that cost is on the rise because the cost of the medications required for treatment has been increasing across the nation.
We are very rarely without at least a couple of heartworm positive dogs undergoing treatment at any given time. Unfortunately, this is an ongoing need.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help with the veterinary expense of getting these sweet dogs the life-saving treatment they need. Any amount is hugely appreciated!
