@Regranned from @drsfdoxies - <3 How a tiny senior gentleman ends up on the streets of Miami as a "stray" suffering from Heartworm we will never know, but Orville is safe with us now and asking your help to provide his life saving heartworm treatment at his FundRazr at https://fundrazr.com/41Jvkf?ref=ab_616GO0
Read on for more of Orville's story and treatment... We have no idea how a tiny senior like Orville would end up on the streets covered in sores and suffering from Heartworm, but Miami is full of dachshund mysteries and when the shelter reached out for rescue for Orville, when we saw his sweet face, we couldn't say no.
Our intake team headed to get him and get him back to Broward and to Dr. Bruce's Animal Hospital where he could get a full workup and get started on the heart worm treatment he needed to save his life.
We are guessing that the first 10-11 years of Orville's life were not kind and filled with love, but we are committed to doing everything we can to make his next years the best of his life.
Will you help us cover Orville's care so that we can be there not only for him, but for other seniors we know are out on the streets tonight and headed our way in the next days and months?
Sadly, Orville's heart worm could have been avoided with just one pill, but we have made our promise to him that once he is through with his treatment, there are nothing but good days ahead! #dachshund #doxie #seniordogsrule #adoptme - #regrann
