Adopting a Dog with Medical Challenges

The dogs who come to Saving Grace are ready for a new beginning. All start with basic forms of medical care: vaccinations, preventatives, and a nutritious diet. Some of our animals, however, need additional care/treatments to get them healthy.

Occasionally, they need additional assistance with procedures such as orthopedics, amputations, dentals. We also have dogs that have skin or heart issues, neurological issues, etc. that end up needing more time to find an adopter who is willing to see them through. Pregnant mothers go into foster care to provide them with a safe environment while she raises her puppies until they are ready for adoption.

Once our dogs have completed treatment and are cleared, any of these dogs can be a great addition to the right family. If you are interested in helping sponsor or adopt, let us know during the adoption process.

Heartworm-Positive Dogs

One common issue we consistently treat are Heartworms. Heartworms are caused by the bite of an infected mosquito. Because the dogs coming to Saving Grace are from areas with limited resources to no medical care, parasites, like Heartworms are not uncommon. To provide necessary treatment and give our Heartworm dogs the opportunity for adoption and a long, healthy life, we begin treatment as soon as they test positive. We use a basic treatment plan, recommended by the American Heartworms Association, which includes a 30-day antibiotic prior to first treatment and then a 3-injection treatment over the course of 8-10 weeks.

If you fall in love with a Heartworm positive dog, you will have the option to enter into our Foster to Adopt Program (FTA) or choose to work with your veterinarian to treat the Heartworms. If you choose our FTA option, as the future adopter, you sign a Foster Agreement with us, and assume responsibility for the care of your dog with the option to return him/her to us for treatment. Once treatment is complete, final adoption can take place. Most Heartworm dogs respond well to treatment, but no treatment is without risk.

Mobility-Challenged Dogs

Some dogs come to SG with debilitating, painful injuries to one of their limbs. Dogs end up as “tri-pawds” due to accidents, injuries, or trauma to name a few or a dog may have a congenital birth defect.

Regardless of the reasoning, many dogs survive on three limbs, enjoying many of the same activities as a 4-legged dog. Our veterinarians evaluate each dog, make recommendations with the dogs’ best interests in mind. They weigh the other options and determine which option has the greatest chance of helping the dog live their highest quality life.
