WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — April is Heartworm Awareness Month.

And to get the word out, a local group called Oakley’s Heart teamed up Saturday with Tractor Supply for an adoption event.

Organizers say heartworm is potentially fatal but also preventable.

“If the dogs get it and are not treated, it can end up compromising their lungs, compromising and eventually they will die from it,” said Krista Milford.

Milford said their next event is next weekend at Packard Park in Warren.

It’s called Strut Your Mutt and they expect really big turnout.
