We started with five puppies. One passed away on it's way to us from GA. The next one died in the wee hours of the morning, and the third one named Solomon went into cardiac arrest yesterday morning. However, I am happy to report that the 2 survivors, Alley and Abraham, are doing GREAT. They were released last night from MEAC (the Metropolitan Emergency Animal Clinic) to their foster home. Luckily the foster is around the corner from the ER and our regular vet. (Thank you Dina!) They will be in quarantine for another 2 weeks, but at least it will be in a home environment. I saw them wag their tales for the first time ever last night. It was wonderful to see. That is what makes it worth it. They still have a long road ahead of them. Fighting pneumonia and parvo at the same time has wrecked their GI track and weakened their immune system. But they have gotten through the worst of it. These are special babies.
Here are some photos and video of them from last night. We are still trying to raise money to cover our exorbitant costs. Please go to our site to donate at www.MuttsMatterRescue.com if you can. These puppies will go on to live healthy and happy lives in memory of those that didn't make it. These other puppies deaths were not in vain. RIP sweet babies.
