Save a Heart

Did you know?

  • Heartworm treatment can cost anywhere between $600 and $800.

  • Heartworm treatment takes at least 60 days to complete.

  • A dog undergoing heartworm treatment must remain calm and inactive for at least 90 days.


Heartworm treatment is expensive, and TIRR Rescue has an almost-constant flow of heartworm-positive dogs.  Any dollar (or couch penny) goes a long way toward making our dogs healthy.  However, it’s also hard to keep a dog calm in a kennel environment, which is why fosters are so important.  A foster can literally save a life!  If you want to learn more about our heartworm-positive dogs, simply scroll down.  If you think you can help, either by donating money or by donating a spot in your home, please do one of the following:
