We had a rough week with the parvo puppies. Our hearts were crushed as we received the news that three puppies were not able to be saved. Even as we needed time to mourn these puppies we continued to get requests to pull dogs, updates about vetting needs for our current dogs, and the continued need to raise funds for training. We rallied and made it to two events so we could network for our current dogs needing homes. We also have been in touch with other businesses to set up events for the future, Ceazer's trainer, and found a trainer for Sugar (our girl who was dumped at a shelter). Also, Blue went to his forever home and is doing awesome!
The four remaining puppies are on the mend, but parvo is a tricky illness and we remain guarded until they are all fully recovered. One should be released from the hospital today.
The support from everyone and the blips of good news are what keep us going in rescue. Seeing happy dogs enjoying life with their new families reminds us that rescue is worth it. All of the tears, heart break, and struggle is for a worthwhile purpose.
We can't do it alone. The bill for hospitalizing the puppies is massive. We still need to raise $400 for Ceazer's training, and have an awesome pledge of $500 for Sugar's training, but that will only cover about two weeks and we are hoping to raise $400 more to keep her with a trainer for a month. Please consider making a donation to help us do the best we can for these dogs. Donations can be made to our paypal through this site or donations for the puppies' hospital bills can be made directly to their vets Sheabel Veterinary Hospital (859) 269-7387 or Gainesway Small Animal Clinic (859) 272-9625.
