Ready to Save a Life?

Adopt a Loving Pet.

be their hero.

Here at the SJBHS, we believe all dogs deserve the chance to have a full life, and that includes dogs with heartworms. Around 50% of our rescued dogs suffer from heartworms, but you can help them recover. Be their hero today and join our Wall of Love! Every donation makes a difference when it comes to saving a life.


We'd love to hear from you!
