Help a Dog with Heartworm Disease


Did you know that April is Heartworm Awareness Month?

In honor of this month, the Jacksonville Humane Society is hosting a week-long awareness campaign titled Heartworm Awareness Week, April 19 – April 25, 2021!


You may have known that each year, JHS will receive pets with ailments such as heartworm disease. But, did you know that JHS covers the entire cost of this treatment? It’s true!

This averages out to about $250 per dog, totaling over $50,000 each year just in treatment cost alone.


We can’t do this alone – you can become a heartworm hero and help save pets with heartworms, too!

Will you lend a paw and save a heart with a loving donation today?
