The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!
Heartworm season is not far away. Prevention is your pet's best bet against this terrible disease. It is not an old wives tale. If your dog is bit by a mosquito that carries heartworm larvae they will enter your dog's heart and develop into hundreds of worms. These worms grow, feeding off the lining of the heart and plugging essential blood vessels. This will cause severe damage to both heart and lungs. This condition is not always treatable and can be fatal. Even if cured your dog may suffer long term consequences.
Prevention: Monthly medication during mosquito season, April thru September. The new preventive medications cause few side effects, combine heartworm prevention with other parasite barriers, and come in convenient once-a-month pill form. See your vet for more information.
ECR spends about $280 per month during heartworm season to protect all our foster dogs from heartworm. If you can help us with this cost

We Love Hearing From
We just received this photo and note from one of our adopters.
"Alvin and Penny Lane were adopted from Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue in 2010. Then we came back and got Bailey (Shortcake) and Baxter (Oreo) in 2013. They are a fantastic little pack."

Buffalos Help ECR
Buffalo Exchange, an upscale thrift store located in Nob Hill helps with a lot of community assistance. When you go to checkout at the store, they will ask you if you would like a bag or a token. If you choose token, you are able to put the token into one of three boxes toward an organization. Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue is one of the options. For every token ECR receives in the box, 5 cents will be donated to the rescue. It adds up!
Next time you are in the Nob Hill area please stop in and don't forg-et your shopping bag!
We Need Your Help For Gruella
Gruella, our Chi-Weenie born the end of September, has just undergone both hip and patella (kneecap) surgery. This double surgery cost ECR $1,000, and that has put a huge dent into ECR's piggy bank. Gruella is one of 12 puppies from 3 pregnant moms we saved from being euthanized last September. All the pups are now due for spay or neuter. If you can help us even a little bit to pay for Gruella's surgery please,
