This is Leon. Leon had been seen under a freeway onramp in Hawthorne, CA, alone and in the rain, for 5 days or so, finding shelter under plants and trees in a makeshift nursery. He was finally coaxed out with a little food and kept safe until animal control was to pick him up. In the meantime, thank goodness, I received a photo of this scruffy little fellow with the saddest eyes. I sent Lee the photo and he immediately took action and picked him up. We couldn’t have him go to the pound. It would have been sure death for little Leon. So we brought him home to try and figure out what to do. We have 2 dogs and a cat, so perhaps foster him and get him ready for a new home? Oh, sure. Shortly after bringing him home we noticed that something was wrong and by the next morning he was vomiting frequently and trying to hide from everyone. We found out that he has PARVO, a very contagious virus that puppies and immune compromised dogs contract. He was to need 24 hour care to pull through and it would be VERY EXPENSIVE! We made the decision to fight for his life. 5 days later he’s finally out of the hospital and getting stronger by the day. He will need to be quarantined from the other dogs for 10 days or so until he’s not contagious any longer, then he can rejoin the pack. We’re so happy that he’s made it through…he is the cutest little thing!
We’re asking for a little help with the crazy vet bill. Anything you can manage would be so greatly appreciated. It would be wonderful to know that he has lots of people looking out for him…He deserves all the love he can get and of course is so lucky to have a new lease on life. We’re very grateful to help him out with that.

Vicki, Lee and Leon. x
