The Story

Sadie and Murphy are beautiful 8 week puppies who were rescued, along 31 others, from horrendous conditions.  Sadie and Murphy are sweet, loving, and outgoing puppies.  Unfortuantely, they came down with Parvo a few short days after being rescued.  Their fosters were quick thinking and they were seen immediately.  Our worst fears were realized when they were both diagnosed with Parvo, a devastating and deadly virus.  Parvo is treatable, but is expensive because it requires hospitalization until the puppies immune system can kick in.

Since both puppies were taken to the vet early on, their prognosis is very good.  However, the vet estimates that it will cost approximately $5,000 to pay for their lifesaving treatments.

Please help contribute to the costs of the puppies' recovery - every contribution helps!  Every single penny goes towards their medical bills...and please continue to check in for their updates!\

Any funds raised over the $5,000 estimate will be sent directly to a medical fund for future medical emergencies, or animals with medical needs that are in need of rescue.  Thank you!

Good evening supporters!  We have great news for you all!  Murphy was released from the hospital this afternoon!!!

That means we have completed the "hospitalization" phase for the puppies - but that doesn't mean the fight is over for these puppies.  Both have been eating and drinking, which gives us good reason to be extremely optimistic for both of them.

We will keep you posted over the next few days as they continue to improve.  But I wanted to take a minute and thank each and every person you made a contribution financially or through kind words and messages sent to us.  We are so honored to have so many people supporting our mission in saving these puppies, as well as all of the other animals we rescue and adopt out.  Your donations made it possible.  The only reason we would have let the dogs go would have been due to funds.  However, all of your donations made it possible for us to ensure that they had the care that they needed to make it through the most critical phase for them.

We couldn't say thank you enough - because of you, two puppies are now resting comfortably in their foster homes surrounded by love.  We will update you again shortly!

Evening Update

Sadie continues to do well in her foster home where she can receive a lot more love and attention.  The foster mom said she is happy and is resting much more comfortable.

Murphy remains hospitalized for the night.  However, he did take his medication orally today and last time we heard, he handled that very well.  Assuming he continues to improve at this pace, he may be home in the next day or two.

Did you see ABC 2's story on Murphy and the amazing 8 year old girl who made our first donation? Be sure to check it out here: http://www.abc2news.com/news/region/harford-county/expensive-treatment-required-to-save-animals

And as always, please continue to share.  We are inching towards our goal but every penny counts and is needed to continue to provide the best care for these puppies so they can go on to living full and happy lives.

Thank you!
