Arrow, Forest and Scout were found abandoned in a pet carrier in a church parking lot in Watsonville. They had seemingly been trapped in the carrier for awhile, eating their own feces to survive. The person who found them brought them in to the Watsonville location of the Santa Cruz Animal Shelter. After not being claimed by an owner, two of the pups (Arrow and Scout) were preadopted by a wonderful couple in the Santa Cruz area. The day that they were scheduled for spay surgery, Arrow tested positive for parvo. Unfortunately all three would have to be euthanized if no rescue stepped in to help them, but we did. We recognize that these puppies have been beat up by life and deserve a chance at a happy life.
We pulled all three puppies and got them admitted to the local emergency veterinary clinics, knowing that was the only chance they would have to recover. Arrow has been fighting to get better since Monday 10/23, and her siblings similarly since they began showing symptoms on 10/27. Their care has cost us over 12k dollars to date, but we will keep fighting with them as long as they are fighting to get better as well.
As you might expect, taking a 12k hit to our operational and medical fund has just about wiped us out. These puppies needed help, and we were there, will you help us make sure we can continue helping them and other animals that need us? Please donate to help these sweet puppies finally get a happy ending, we simply cannot do it without you.
