Chance Gets a Second Chance Thanks to Puppy Parvo ICU
Lethargic, infested with ticks and suffering from a dangerously low body temperature, 5-month-old Chance was found as a stray by our Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™ in critical condition. The Boxer puppy was brought to our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, where our medical team discovered he had both parvovirus and tick fever.
Parvovirus, also known as parvo, is a highly contagious, often fatal, viral disease in puppies and unvaccinated adult dogs. Parvo has long been considered an untreatable and challenging disease for animal shelters throughout the country. But the Arizona Humane Society is changing that thanks to our new Parvo Puppy ICU, a parvo treatment center that gives homeless pets like Chance a second chance.
Chance was placed on medication and IV fluids in our Puppy Parvo ICU. After several days of treatment, he began to eat, drink and become more alert.
Chance is now recovering in a foster hero home until he is ready to go to his forever home.
This summer we’re on a mission to save pets just like Chance and we need your help.
We’re transforming Maricopa County into one of the best places to be a pet, with a mission to make happy “after” stories for thousands of “before” pets. So, what’s the story between “before” and “after”? Harrowing rescue, cruelty investigation, advanced medical treatment, tender care, lots of love...and YOU.
When you join our Summer to Save Lives campaign, you make happy endings come true. You put tails back where they belong and bring pets like Chance back from death’s door. Help us save the lives of pets this summer and give second chances to animals with nowhere else to turn.
