Healthy Hearts, Volunteers, and Beer Happening in April

What’s hoppin? We’ve got an exciting month of dogs, kittens, beer, and a round of applause for Cosmo Kramer who recently completed Heartworm Treatment just in time for Heartworm Awareness Month.

Check out what’s coming up this month for DPA and we hope to see you at our 9th Annual DPA Pup Crawl on April 29th!

Heartworm Awareness Month

We spent $11,639.89 in 2022 to help pets go through Heartworm Treatment. It’s a tough experience for both the foster pet and the foster, who has to ensure their foster pet is minimizing activity and resting for 6-8 weeks. The treatment hits hard at the worms infecting pets like Cosmo’s heart. Now that he has completed Heartworm treatment, it’s time to find a home of his own. Is anyone looking for an Easter bunny look-alike? Send in an application to meet Cosmo Kramer! Want to support a pet going through Heartworm treatment? Love a heart by clicking here.
