Rusty was a shelter dog in Tennessee when the Wallace family found him and brought him the veterinarian to be neutered. It was then they discovered Rusty, an 8-year-old dog, had heart worm. The family was heartbroken because the costs would be too high for the single mom to handle after adoption fees and neutering. So she reached out asking for help so she would not have to return Rusty to the shelter.
The Tortorella Foundation stepped in to help so they could keep their loving dog and paid for the bulk of the heart worm treatment. Rusty, can now stay with his family!
