Ron's Update: Canine Parvovirus

Ron needed our help.

Ron came to us as a transfer from a rural shelter that needed our help. Unfortunately, Ron and two others tested positive for Canine Parvovirus. Parvo is a serious and highly contagious disease to dogs who are unvaccinated and is fatal without veterinary intervention. While the two other dogs are responding well to our treatment, it was determined by our veterinarian that Ron would need emergency round-the-clock care.

For this to happen, we had to enlist the help of a 24hr emergency vet who would be able to provide Ron the supportive care he needed. As you can imagine, this comes at a financial cost that hits a shelter like ours very hard – now more than ever. We reached out to our amazing community of supporters and were able to raise over $4000 for Ron and our other parvovirus cases to help offset the huge medical cost we incur when we take on sick or injured animals.

These life-saving donations help us get Ron and animals like him the intensive care they need.

Ron was in a delicate state for the first week of his diagnosis. It was very touch-and-go for the first few days, but we are thrilled to report this lucky pup seems to have turned the corner! He is doing much better and has been placed in foster care where he can continue his journey of healing in a calm environment.

Ron is not only eating on his own, but his appetite is back to ravenous puppy standards! He has a lot more energy and has played with a few of his (many) toys. Ron is just one of the several parvo cases that we have helped with in the past few weeks and he will not be the last! Your generous donations have allowed us to offer the best treatment for extreme medical cases like Ron that require immediate life-saving care!
We are forever thankful to our supporters who fund our mission and to our Fred Foster Family who continue to provide love and care.
