Kolby's Heartwarming Tail

Please Feel Free to Cross Post!
Kolby Connects with Col. Potter!

This adventuresome 4 - 5 year old Cairn boy, boasting great charm and good looks, was rescued by a kind woman this past Spring .  She had found him when he was on the lamb, and took him in and kept him safe while she tried to locate his owner.  Failing that, she finally contacted Col. Potter and we readily offered him sanctuary and assistance in finding a new home.  When our vet neutered him, Kolby was found to be high Stage 2 – low Stage 3 heartworm positive, so his plans to  find a Forever home where he could continue hunting prey were all set aside, and he found himself pretty much confined to a crate or Foster Mom’s lap for the duration. 

Kolby has finally completed his lengthy heartworm treatment and has been determined to be heartworm free!  He has now been adopted by a wonderful home that had been waiting patiently for him to be made available.   We wish him a long and happy life – full of interesting prey and lots of love!

An average of six to eight times each year, Col. Potter rescues a heartworm positive Cairn, giving them the chance to overcome this dreadful condition and live a happy, healthy life.  The prescribed treatment program runs an average cost of $1,000, and is not for the faint of heart, requiring a dedicated Volunteer to be there for a three or four month duration, managing every aspect of every day for the dog undergoing treatment.

PupsEtc is pleased to offer Col. Potter a special Heartwarming Tails fundraiser to help offset the cost of our current stable of four Foster Cairns undergoing this expensive heartworm treatment.  Beginning Saturday, October 19th through Friday, November 1st, a full 20% of all proceeds taken in by PupsEtc during this two week period will be donated to Col. Potter.

NEW!  The Picaboo Square Bolster bed with Removable Center Pillow in honor of CP Picaboo, currently undergoing treatment for heartworm.
