Titus is doing much better and is taking his time grooming his best friend Takoda! A fellow must look his best! Takoda sends his thanks to John and Karl for the package of toys!

Titus and his medical team today. Bummer, he’s not feeling well again today. Spending the day in observation. 🐾❤️
Hi everyone. It’s me Winston (one of the breeder/hoarder confiscation Dals) I saw a surgeon today and after two consults it’s been recommended that I have surgery. It’s a specialized procedure that will lengthen the prepuce and cover my penis normally (which hangs out all the time). Sorry for the embarrassing photo but DRSF wants our donors to see what my problem is. It’s uncomfortable, gets irritated and infected. I’m not excited about the surgery but the surgeon told me it’s much better for my health and well being. Dal Rescue is putting together a fundraiser based on the $2135 estimate Doc gave us today. Please consider a donation of any amount via PayPal to help me. I’d be very grateful for any donations.
Love, Winston ❤️

Dalmatian Rescue Heartworm fund drive. Please help us meet the need!
Dalmatian Rescue Begins Heartworm Fundraiser!
Recently we have taken in several heartworm positive rescues. We begin this fundraiser to meet these specific medical expenses.
You may wonder what causes heartworm disease. Heartworm arises from the parasite organism Dirofilaria Immitis. Dirofilaria Immitis is a nematode (roundworm). The severity of illness directly correlates to the number of worms, how long they have been present, and the overall health of the infected dog.
In dogs with an early disease state may be asymptomatic. In other words, they are showing minimal indication or no symptoms at all. In more advanced cases a persistent cough and intolerance to moderate exercise.
Where did we get our information? We relied on PetMd.com. Please read "Heartworm Disease in Dogs (Dirofilariasis in Dogs) "on petmd.com.
We also strongly urge you to review and verify this with your veterinarian.
Our current heartworm patients include the following pups.
