Austin Animal Center is kicking off a promotion to help get heartworm positive dogs into forever homes. Tuesday, June 12 through Monday, June 18 adoption fees for heartworm positive dogs will only be $20. AAC will also give adopters a free crate, in addition to a voucher for free heartworm treatment through Emancipet and six months of heartworm preventative.
