My name is Shine and I’m part of the 90s singers and songs transport coming to OPH 4/12/19. I’m guessed to be a 3 1/2 year old shepherd/setter mix. I weigh around 45lbs. I was turned into a rural shelter in Alabama with my babies. I watched them all get adopted but no one came for me. OPH stepped in and saved the day. I’m in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! A sweetheart like me won’t be available long!
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. OPH will treat the dog and provide two weeks of recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.
