8 Puppies sick with Parvo, They only have...

IL

$415.00 raised of $2,000.00

We regret to announce the 8 Spaniel mixes have been exposed to and contracted the Parvo virus and are now hospitalized in ISO undergoing treatment.

Please keep AJ, Alex, Allie, Ace, Annie, Andy, Apollo, Angel in your thoughts and prayers.

They have been given a 50/50 chance of survival at this point.  Your donations would help us afford quality supplements like medications, Electrolyte solutions and of course further veterinary care for each puppy. 


Such an outbreak to 8 puppies at one time is devastating for our rescue.

We need financial help if we are going to be able to continue to provide care to the pups.



K9 Enrichment Initiative, Inc. took in 8 Spaniel mixes from a Southern Illinois Rescue who had saved their pregnant Mom from euthanasia when she was part of a hoarding case.  The puppies were born in a foster home along side 10 other pups from their Mom's sister, who was also saved from death.

The 12-week old puppies arrived Friday, August 11th at our veterinary hospital. They appeared healthy, well tempered and full of life.

On Sunday evening a couple of the pups had loose stools, we sent fecal samples of 4 pups to be checked for parasites. The samples showed Hookworms and we received medication asap to begin treatment.  When their foster Mom noticed blood in the feces, a volunteer quickly ran the sample to the hospital. By 8:00 am, the puppies were on their way to be hospitalized with the Parvo virus.  We discovered the puppies had not been vaccinated until the night before they left on transport at 12 weeks of age.  We could not be more devastated and our at our credit limit at the hospital. We need to make a $7000.00 payment.

The cost of the Parvo pups is skyrocketing our already overdrawn credit, we are in dire straits financially as our puppies are in dire straits fighting for their lives.


Any donation is greatly appreciated as it all adds up and helps pay the bill.



Updates

  • The puppies are able to be adopted by their foster to adopt families next week! This is so exciting for each and every single one!

    We still need a lot of help to reach their WISH amounts, please help us!

  •  ALL of the Parvo Puppies are now all in foster to adopt homes, with the exception of Allie. Allie has a serious heart murmur and will need to see a cardiologist after she is cleared of Parvo.


    The rest of the litter is doing well, growing and adjusting to life in a family. We haven't had any set backs since they received their second vaccinations last Thursday/Friday.


    Allie currently lives with her littermate Andy and his family, as we cannot place her in a home and do not want to have her living in the hospital.  


    Allie will need surgery if possible to save her life. The cost of a similar surgery for another dog with rescue was $4000. As we haven't paid off the money we already owe this hospital, not likely we will raise funds to save her life if possible.

  • A loving touch can help heal in so many ways.  Please help these puppies with their journey of healing.

    Allie will need surgery if possible to save her life. The cost of a similar surgery for another dog with rescue was $4000. We haven't paid off the money we owe this hospital for the parvo care yet, so we will need to raise the funds for Allie's heart surgery before she can move forward with it.

  • We had a scare on Sunday early AM when Annie became lethargic, stopped drinking water and liquid diarrhea began pouring from her body. She was rushed to the ER vet and quickly placed on IV's. The next day, we transferred her back to our vet where she spent two more days, before being released back into her fosters care.

    As of today, she is continuing to become stronger, eating, drinking water and eliminating normally.  


    Angel has joined Andy in foster care and is taking applications for her family. She will continue to shed the virus for up to 2 months and as with any of her litter-mates, there is the possibility the virus isn't done with her yet.


    Alex the smallest of the males remains in the hospital on IV's as he is not responding as quickly to treatment. The vets continue to monitor him hourly as he has stopped eating. Please keep Alex and all the pups in your thoughts as they continue to attempt to kick Parvo's butt.

  • Yesterday, Apollo and Annie were released into their foster to adopt homes. The homes have no other pets and both families have round the clock adults home to monitor the puppies. The veterinarians have provided the families with a wealth of information and will be readily available to answer their calls if questions arise.


    Please continue to offer positive thoughts for these 8 beautiful souls stricken by this horrific virus. As of today, Ace and Angel are struggling.


    Andy, Allie, AJ and Alex are stable, improving and ready to go into home care.


    Please continue to share the fundraiser as we are nowhere close to being able to make the payment.

    Thank you and have a blessed day.

  • We greatly appreciate the donations we have gotten to provide financial aid to the rescue. We cannot save lives without providing top notch medical care when necessary.

    6 of the pups were stable as of this evening and if continuing to progress could leave the hospital soon. It seems as though each day brings about two different dogs struggling out of the litter.  

    They are being monitored constantly for any signs of distress or downward spiral. If you know Parvo, you know it attacks quickly and is the reason it's fatal to young pups who have not built up antibodies to fight it.
