Adopt Katy from C.A.R.E.!

Katy is a beautiful and very sweet Jack Russell terrier mix who weighs about 30 pounds fully grown. Our vet believes she is about 2 years old. Katy loves people and other dogs her size.

Katy is in good health, although she did have evidence of microfilarie when tested for heartworms. This means that while her blood serum test was negative, that she had been bitten by a mosquito infected with heartworms and that the eggs deposited in her blood system had hatched. Lucky for Katy, the infection was found at this early stage and is easily eradicated! Heartworms are fatal if not detected and treated. Katy is up to date with vaccines, spayed and microchipped. Come meet Katy and all our other adoptable dogs at our adoption stand on Sunday from 11AM until 2 PM. We will be at the Petco at Swift Creek, 13329 Rittenhouse Drive, Midlothian. More information on adoption, including our policies and process, can be found at www.carerva.com.
