Your help is needed to treat puppies with parvovirus
Since January 2017, Joplin Humane Society has tested and treated more than 85 puppies and young dogs that came in with parvovirus.
Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness. The virus attacks rapidly dividing cells in a dog’s body, most severely affecting the intestinal tract.
We believe every parvo puppy deserves a chance; we test, isolate, treat and quarantine sick and exposed puppies and dogs. Saving lives does not come "cheap"; JHS spends an average of $250 on each puppy to provide medications, care and treatment of the affected puppy. The number of sick puppies quickly depletes our fund, but the need for care never ends.
You can help us continue saving these innocent lives by making a donation as small as $10. All donations raised thought his campaign will be designated for our medical fund and used to treat puppies and young dogs who have parvovirus.
Donate as little as $10 or as much as you are able by selecting increments of $10 in the drop down. We can only continue saving the lives of these beautiful, sweet puppies with your generous support.
All the puppies in the photos are puppies currently in the shelter receiving lifesaving treatment for canine parvovirus.
