We have a few that came up to us as heartworn positive, so they’ll be in foster homes for quite a while.”“All of the puppies will need to be spayed and neutered. They need their core vaccines. So, it adds up very quickly,” said executive director Karen Baker.The humane society runs entirely on donations. They say any help with medical expenses would be appreciated.“We have a medical fund you can do that by going to hscarroll.org and click on donate,” Baker said.It may be a few weeks before the animals are ready for adoption to make sure they’re healthy enough to go out to families. But some of them may be ready as early as next week.
