Hi, my name is Dutch and I'm a 3 year old Pit bull mix. I was rescued from the St.Clair County Animal Control and I have tested positive for heartworms. The average cost to treat heartworms is $3.50 per pound. I am guessed to be about 65lbs. I also have an old injury to my foot that was never taken care of properly but thanks to the amazing staff at Partners for Pets and Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital I am expected to make a full recovery. Please consider a donation to help cover the cost of my treatment plans. Donations can be made to Partners for Pets, PO Box 445, Troy IL 62294 or to our PayPal account http://paypal.me/partnersforpets.
UPDATE: Goodbye Heartworms! Hello Life!! Dutch has completed his heartworm treatment and now is available for adoption. He gets along well with submissive females and loves to play in the yard. He will need to be enrolled in obedience classes in order to be adopted. His leg injury is healing nicely however he does have some stiffness after laying around and it may or may not go away in time.
If you are interested in adopting me please go to our website at www.partnersforpetsil.org and fill out an online application. My adoption fee is $145. I am neutered and current on all vaccinations, dewormed and microchipped.
Adoptions are held at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart every Saturday of the month from 11am-3:30pm and at the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart every Sunday and the first Saturday of the month from 11am-3:30pm. We are also at Petco in Edwardsville Crossing every Sunday of the month from 11:30-3:30 pm. The cats are only at Glen Carbon. Please let us know if you are interested in a pet and we can arrange to have them meet you at one of the adoption events.
