Poppy is 6 years old. She was adopted from a puppy mill by her wonderful owners. At the time of her adoption, she was found with severely matted fur, living in deplorable conditions. Poppy was initially very fearful of people, she wouldn't even look at her new owners.
Poppy was cleaned up and taken to her veterinarian for a check up. Several days after her check up appointment, through blood work, Poppy was found to be heartworm positive. Poppy's owners were devastated but knew taking her back to the puppy mill where she was found was not an option.
Slowly but surely, Poppy has started to trust her new owners and is loving her new life. Now, its our turn to do right by Poppy. We have sponsored her heartworm treatment to allow her to live out the rest of her life happy and healthy.
Poppy received her first heartworm treatment injection on January 2nd and is well on her way to recovery! Check back for updates!
