#Houston TX: GOOD NEWS! RE: #Chow mix found chained to fence A1537294 High heartworm positive

He was rescued 2/15/18 by Denise of Houston Cow Chow Connection and named Frisco. Heartworm treatment is particularly expensive. Animal rescue in general is expensive. Please support the all-volunteer (i.e, no administrative expenses) 501(c)3 group by donating through their website at  http://hccchou.org/
Thanks to all who crossposted.

This poor guy was found chained to a fence in a business parking lot. One of our ACT's says he is really sweet and potty trained.  He is high heartworm positive.
