Saving Grace offers adopters two options if they meet and select a dog infected with heartworms. Saving Grace strives to offer these dogs the same opportunities for adoption..
Saving Grace uses a basic treatment plan that includes an antibiotic and 3-injection protocol. This protocol has proven in most cases safe and effective for those in need of treatment.

Saving Grace understands that this is a more involved adoption process and that there are always risks involved with major treatments of any kind and as a result this type of adoption may not be for everyone. We rely on sponsors tto make this special program possible for the many heartworm-positive dogs we see through our program — you can make a donation to help us treat more heartworm positive dogs..
