Help us help Melvin! Heartworm Positive!
Meet Melvin! Melvin is what rescue is all about!
Melvin came to us needing a new home through no fault of his own. Melvin's parents got divorced and he stayed with his Dad who works long hours and a varying schedule and it was taking its toll on poor Melvin. He was not only not getting the attention he needed but he was also having accidents in the house because his schedule was up in the air!
After coming to OBHR and being examined by our vet, we found Mel to have quite a few medical issues. He has bad teeth for one, and will need to have a dental done, but he also tested positive for Heartworm and Lyme disease! Melvin's former vet was an old country vet that didn't check for such things, and his former dad, who is devastated at the news didn't know about them either.
Melvin's medical expenses are estimated to be around $2500. This includes HW treatment, a dental, and boarding until he is stable and able to move to a foster home. The Lyme will not cause extra expenses as the HW treatment will kill it.
You can help us help Melvin and dogs like him by donating to our general fund or participating in our fundraisers and sales!

***UPDATE ON OTHER OBHR DOGS' MEDICAL ISSUES*** Huck is clear of all parasites and now we are working on upping his iron level and weight so we can neuter! He is doing great in the house and with his foster brothers and sister! Loves his crate "safe place".
Daisy is being kenneled at our vet and will have a dental on 2/11 and is being boarded until a foster/forever home WITHOUT OTHER DOGS is available.
