Once a frisky puppy, there was now something terribly wrong with Grits.

Her bones were shaking and her body ached. Her temperature dropped and she was refusing to eat. Our Shelter Medicine Team ran a parvo test on her… and it came back positive.

Most shelters have to euthanize at the first sign of parvo, but because we have the continued support of donors like you, parvo is not a death sentence.

Your support allowed Grits to fight this horrible disease.

With you behind her, she made it through parvo and into the loving arms of a family who cherishes her. Grits’ medical success was only possible because of generous friends like you.

Your support today is the lifeline for animals suffering from deadly diseases.
