EVENT DATE: Aug 22, 2015
WE ARE JUST NOW GETTING PHOTOS OF ALL PUPS and WILL ADD ASAP.
You Lucky Dog Rescue and Sanctuary is an IRC 501c3 non profit dog rescue organization. Licensed by the State of Georgia, we are an all-volunteer organization with no paid employees. All of our rescue dogs, once vetted, are cared for in loving foster homes while we work towards placing them in qualified adoptive homes. Learn more about us at www.youluckydogrescue.org
Last week, we pulled a litter of 9 Catahoula mix 2-month old pups. While in the care of one of our partner vets, two of the pups started show signs of the parvovirus which can result in quick death to young pups. Late last night, we made arrangements to transport those two pups to an animal hospital so they could receive early medical intervention. This morning, the remaining seven pups begin to show symptoms, and they too, have been transported to another animal hospital that had availability to care for them in a hospital setting. Tests have been administered and they are positive for Parvovirus. The estimated cost of hospitalization and treatment is $1,200 per pup. We do not turn away from sick dogs. We pursue all reasonable medical protocols to save. We are a small rescue group. We do not maintain a large emergency reserve, and this medical crisis will cost more than we have to spare. In fact, this will be the largest medical sponsorship request we have ever made in the 4-year history of our rescue organization.
Please consider offering your financial support to these deserving pups. We literally cannot continue without the help of animal lovers and rescue advocates like you! We will provide condition updates as we travel this journey together. Please donate, share this story, and join the team of compassionate people that will work together to win the battle for the Catahoula Pups.
