Featured Mended Hearts Dog - Meet Etouffe!

Etouffe (Effie for short) came to us from Anderson Animal Protection League. She is Heartworm Positive and was running out of time. Mended Hearts was asked if we could help and we said YES! She was pulled around Christmas time and is now settling in to her foster home. We will work to get some weight on her and get her healthy. Stay tuned for more on Effie!

Thank you Katelin Ryan for stepping up and giving this girl a place to rest her head while we work as a team getting her ready for her forever home!
