From Adversity to Adoption: Our Path to Saving Recent Parvo Puppies

At Spokane Humane Society, we face challenges head-on, and our recent journey with a litter of puppies diagnosed with parvovirus was no exception. We want to share this story with you, our community, to shed light on the resilience of these pups and the dedication of our team.

When the diagnosis came, easy would have been to give up or turn away. But instead, we united, implementing rigorous quarantine and isolation measures to contain the virus. Through weeks of round-the-clock care and veterinary support, teamwork, and dedication, we’re thrilled to announce that these resilient pups have triumphed over this illness and are now ready for their chance at a forever home.

Let’s meet the stars of the show, our resilient puppies:

Each of these pups has a unique personality and a lot of love to give. We believe they deserve the chance to thrive in a loving home, and we’re excited to help make that happen.

Buffalo Wild Wings: This pup has the most unique bark we've ever heard! She adores attention and snuggling, and her love for her stuffies knows no bounds.
Darcy’s: A sweetheart who loves nothing more than curling up for a snuggle session.
Atilano’s: Food is his love language, along with his adoration for his stuffed toys.
Zip's: An independent thinker and a wild child at heart, this pup marches to the beat of his own drum.

Puppy PopUp Event

Monday, May 6th, 1–5 pm | SHS Shelter 6607 N Havana

We’re hosting a special Puppy Popup Event THIS coming Monday, May 6, 2024, to celebrate their recovery and find them loving families. We invite you to join us and meet these courageous pups in person and consider welcoming them home.

(ADOPTED!) Carl’s Junior: Energetic and food-loving, CJ is ready to bring joy and laughter into his new home.
Arby's: This sweet boy enjoys being held, but his excitement for food is hard to contain!
Accordion: easy-going pup, playful, enjoys cuddles, and basking in the sun.
Trumpet: easy-going pup, playful, enjoys cuddles, and basking in the sun.

We understand there may be concerns, so we want you to know that the health and safety of both our animals and the community are our top priorities. We’re committed to education and ensuring adopters understand the importance of continued care post-adoption. These puppies will need to stay in their new homes for 4-6 weeks to prevent any potential spread of the virus.

Additionally, we’re seeking adopters with dogs over 1-year old, fully vaccinated, and without compromised immune systems. Homes with fenced areas are preferred, and communal dog areas should be avoided to minimize risks.

Now, we have a special request. The expenses incurred during this journey have been significant, from medical treatments, including a new canine antibody which is a costly yet effective new treatment to parvo, to round-the-clock care. We’re reaching you for your support to help cover these costs, ensuring we can continue to provide the highest level of care to animals in need. Your donation, no matter the size, will make a difference in the lives of these pups like these sweet furbabies and many others like them in the future.
