We offer monthy, low-cost clinics in the New Orleans Area

A look inside our clinics

Trading Chains

We love to see our dogs on great and safe harnesses, family members don't wear chains. Thanks to Harness Lead, we can show people a ore compassionate way to walk their dogs. 

How do they work?

Low-Cost Heartworm Prevention Clinics


Heartworm 101

  • The Southeast region of the United States, including Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, and Mississippi, have the highest rate of Heartworm Disease in the US
  • In New Orleans (NOLA) alone, 80% (160K) of shelter and stray dogs are HeartWorm positive. Just one NOLA rescue spends over half a million a year on treatment.
  • Heartworm Disease results in suffering and is fatal if untreated 
  • Heartworm Disease is preventable

From the Heartworm Treatment Study

Andrea writes

Good morning. 

I went to one of your clinics to get my dog Quincy tested for Heartworms and he was positive. He is a 53lb mix pit. My son had rescued him on New Year's Eve.

Quincy was actually a friend of my sons dog but he was left outside with no shelter and a rope tied around his neck that was cutting into him. He was fed every other day.

When my son realized this, he just took him, and these two have pretty much been together since.  They go mud-ridding, swimming, on boat rides.  He is a JOY to have in our lives and loves to give hugs and just jump into your arms.  

I appreciate anything you can do to help us get him well.
