If you're interested in helping the dogs in our care that are affected by heartworm, here's how:
FOSTER: These dogs need a calm, quiet environment to help their recovery, so the shelter is not ideal. All costs/supplies are provided by the HSWA.
DONATE: Donate to the Humane Society of West Alabama Heartworm Fund at Animal Medical Center by calling (205) 758-7295 or mail a check to: 1100 Rice Valley Rd N, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35406
