Abandoned By His Family, Your IHD Purchases Saved Kilo From Certain Death

Part of each sale through the iHeartDogs store is donated to Greater Good, which helps support various charities. Thanks to customers like you, happy endings, like the one below, are made possible.

Kilo was about 5-years-old when his owners surrendered him to a Mississippi kill shelter. Although the 100+ pound Akita mix never showed any signs of aggression, they feared he may accidentally harm their grandchildren.

Sadly, Kilo was diagnosed with heartworm disease at the shelter. Without rescue, this would mean a death sentence.

Thanks to a grant from GreaterGood.org funded by the iHeartDogs community, the rescue group Animal Lifeline was able to give Kilo a “second chance” at life.

The folks from Second Chance Movement took Kilo and several other at-risk pups on a freedom ride to find their forever homes. Kilo now has a loving family and is beginning heartworm treatment with an excellent prognosis!

“The grant allowed us to save not just Kilo on this transport but about 14 others that will have the second chance that they deserve.” – Animal Lifeline

When you purchase items from the Second Chance Movement collection from the iHeartDogs store, you’re funding miles to freedom and life for pets like Kilo!
