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.
