7 puppies rescued by NBSPCA

Fred­er­ic­ton, New Brunswick – The New Brunswick SPCA (NBSP­CA) is ask­ing for help from the pub­lic after res­cu­ing sev­en sick pup­pies in need of urgent med­ical care. 

The pup­pies showed signs of ill­ness and were rushed to the emer­gency ani­mal hos­pi­tal by the Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Offi­cer. The pup­pies were thin and unvac­ci­nat­ed. All of the sev­en pup­pies test­ed pos­i­tive for the dead­ly PAR­VO virus and need­ed imme­di­ate med­ical care. Sad­ly, one pup­py did not survive.

The NBSP­CA is seek­ing the public’s help with the cost of the emer­gency inten­sive med­ical care, food, and shel­ter nec­es­sary to give these pup­pies the best chance of a full recov­ery”, said Les­ley Rogers, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, this is not an iso­lat­ed case, we are receiv­ing requests for help from across the province daily.

The pup­pies require ongo­ing med­ical care and are not enter­tain­ing adop­tion inter­ests or vis­i­tors. The NBSP­CA has placed the pup­pies under the lov­ing care of the Oro­moc­to SPCA ani­mal shel­ter while they recuperate.
