Rehn's Story


Rehn is a 2 -year-old dark brindle male who was originally found as a stray by Texarkana Animal Control. Helga Simeone is a volunteer at this shelter and could not leave this sweet boy there, so she took him into her home which consists of a lab puppy and a greyhound who is very sick from Ehrlichia. Helga took him to a local vet to have him checked out, only to find out he has heart worms. Because of her older greyhound's medical needs and condition, Helga contacted GALT to bring him into our program.

Rehn is now under the care of Dr. Ron Stried, GALT's vet in the Austin area, where he began his heart worm treatment August 1. As with most strays, he is also heavily infested with hookworms and whipworms, and is receiving treatment for these also. His foster mom, Sadie Pack, is keeping him quiet and overseeing his recuperation.


Rehn is a very sweet, affectionate and quiet greyhound, who loves to lean and just be around people. Because of Helga's kindness, generosity and love of this special breed, Rehn (who, by the way, was named by the Simeone's after Ludwig Rehn, a heart surgeon) is getting a second chance at life.

Heartworm treatment is very, very expensive. These special medical treatment costs needed by Rehn is why the Miss Mesa Fund was established.
