Ian Somerhalder Foundation and

In May 2016, Project Hope received 6 heart worm positive dogs. The estimated treatment cost totaled $2,000.

We applied for and received the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Emergency Medical Grants for the amount of $500. We would like to thank the foundation for their support in our time of significant need.
