Elmo is positive for heartworms, but through a local program called "Roxy's Fund," the entire cost of his treatment will be paid for - he just needs a home he can be treated in.
Elmo's named used to be Lucky, but the shelter changed it because they had a feeling he wasn't feeling so lucky. With a new name and a new social media campaign, the shelter is hoping someone will see Elmo and decide to welcome this amazing dog into their home.
