Six dogs rescued after Hurricane Harvey are working through health problems here in the Quad Cities.
King’s Harvest No Kill Shelter in Davenport brought the dogs from an over-crowded Texas shelter last week.
Officials say the dogs have tested positive for a tick disease that’s common in the south.
It’s not as serious as they thought, but it does require medication.
They say the dogs are friendly and outgoing and are up for adoption.
“All are adaptable, they will require twice a day antibiotic for either two months to six months. Just depending on how long it takes to get that parasite out of their system,” says Jason Santana.
King’s Harvest is providing all the medication the dogs will need.
They say at the moment their biggest need is donations to cover all the medical costs.
Once the animals are adopted, staffers say they’ll be saving more dogs from Texas.
