Six pups, rescued from Lancaster shelter, are battling for their lives against deadly parvo, and need your help to survive. Ranging from age 1 to 12 months old, these tiny pups' immune systems were not strong enough to fight this brutal disease.
Six pups, rescued from Lancaster shelter, are battling for their lives against deadly parvo, and need your help to survive. Ranging from the ages of 1 month to 12 months old, these tiny pups' immune systems were not strong enough to fight off this brutal disease.

Four chihuahuas, one lab pup and one pug mix, rescued by OR rescue Save the Pets from high kill CA shelter Lancaster, have come down with the killer virus. Five of the pups are showing symptoms, and one pup has tested positive for parvo. Two of the pups in particular have been hit with the disease harder than the others. For this reason, the pups are receiving a mixture of treatment in a vets and home environment, including intravenous fluids, antibiotics, antivirals and other supportive care like Parvaid and vitamins. Annabelle, the lab pup pictured at the vets, has already sadly lost her brother to the virus.

//WHAT IS PARVO VIRUS?
Parvo is a severe, often life-threatening disease of the intestinal tract and bone marrow (and sometimes other organs) of dogs. A 'typical' case of parvo virus generally presents to vets as young puppies which look very unwell (they have no energy and are sad and lethargic), often with varying degrees of vomiting (sometimes blood filled), diarrhea (sometimes blood-filled), dehydration, inappetence, shock, abdominal pain and fever.//

The cost of this treatment is potentially crippling to a rescue with so many of the pups ill, and they will need us to stand behind them. The lives of these puppies are in our hands - please if you can, donate and share. Its times like these that rescues need our help the most.

Thank you for caring about the lives of these precious parvo pups and for showing that rescue dogs' lives matter. Together, we can give them the chance to have the bright, healthy futures they deserve.
