Dennis Rottman at Warrick Animal Control – Needs Heart Worm Treatment
Can we just talk about how much I love it when animals are named after celebrities? I have a very cool cat. His name is Peyton Meownning. I still hold out hope that the former Colts Quarterback will knock on my door wanting to meet his feline fan but it still hasn't happened.
Warrick Animal Control obtained a big boy who bears the pet version name of another famous athlete. Meet Dennis Rottman. I met him last week and he's a super sweet boy but Dennis has a big problem. He's heartworm positive which isn't surprising since this area is one of the highest concentrations of heartworm infected dogs in the country.
Dennis Rottman is heartworm positive. He is a great dog and we would love to treat him IF we can raise enough funds to do that! Because of his size he is going to take a lot of heartworm medication. We are looking at $600-$800 to get this guy treated! Please send via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org or directly WVC 812-897-4855.
Let's hope that the community comes through for Dennis or maybe a big eccentric basketball player will fund his animal counterpart's medical treatment. We can all hope can't we?!
Warrick Animal Control is located in Boonville, IN. And technically funded by the county, the county doesn't pay for food or many supplies needed in daily operations. They rely on fundraisers and donors. All cages are also full right now so if you can, adopt. If you can't adopt, shop! (For supplies for the Warrick Co animals!) And, if you ever visit Animal Control, they do an awesome job of caring for animals that come in and finding them loving homes or rescues.
Some basic needs:
- Paper Towels
- Dog Food
- Cat Food
- Dish Soap
- Laundry Soap
- Cat Litter
And if you are looking to adopt, here are some sweet faces that you should meet today!
