Remus (senior dog) was found as a stray and taken to a high-volume shelter, where they found he had heartworm. This is a serious and potentially fatal disease that is costly to treat, greatly limiting the potential pool of adopters. However, EASEL is able to provide the recommended type of veterinary care that has a high success rate for curing the disease. So, Remus was transferred to us, began his treatment, and was adopted.
