Another Gustov stray

Bandit, named after Vicki Hearne's dog, was among the pack that included Harold and Maude. After vetting them and dropping them off for boarding, I returned to the lower ninth ward and found Bandit waiting for me. I put food down on the street and after eating, he ran over and buried his head in my lap. Like Harold and Maude, he is heartworm positive. If anyone can help toward their treatment, please make a contribution to The Sula Foundation.

Oh how incredibly sad. I will try and scrounge up some cash to send your way. Why are all these dogs coming back with heartworm?

Ah, the South and Heartworm. I swear over half the dogs we rescue are positive. So sad since it's so easily prevented...they should make the meds less expensive so maybe more people would use them.
