Pet Of The Week: Animal Friends Puppies In Need Of Saving


IT’S TIME FOR THIS WEEK’S PET OF THE WEEK WHERE WE MEET ADOPTABLE PETS FROM AREA SHELTERS LOOKING FOR FOREVER HOME. TODAY’S PET COMES TO US FROM ANIMAL FRIENDS WHERE THE SHELTER IS ASKING FOR HELP TO SAVE A LITTER OF PUPPIES FROM A DEADLY DISEASE. SHANNON PARK IS HERE TO TELL US ABOUT THE NEED. COULD YOU NOT BRING THE PUPPIES BECAUSE OF HOW SICK THEY ARE. YES. LET’S TALK ABOUT CALVIN. HE’S A 40U7BD MIX? YES — HOUND MIX. MY NAME MEANS STRONG IN BATTLE. HE WAS FOUND SLUMMED OVER THE MEDIAN OF THE ROADWAY GUNSHOT TO THE FACE. THAT IS WHY YOU CAN SEE WE HAD TO TAKE ONE OF HIS EYES. HE IS AMAZING. HE IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST DOGS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. HE WAS READY TO COME AND GO. HE’S AN AMAZING DOG. HE’S VERY SWEET. EVERYBODY LOVES HIM. AND I THINK HIS STORY — TALK ABOUT STRENGTH, YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM. HE IS VERY GOOD NATURED. HE CAME OVER TO ME AND PUT HIS NOSE ON MY CHIN AND GAVE ME A LITTLE KISS. HE’LL BURY HIS FACE INTO YOUR LAP. HE IS WONDERFUL. WHAT COMMUNITY WAS HE FOUND IN? HE WAS FOUND IN WEST VIRGINIA. HIS STORY, LIKE DOGS LIKE THIS, CATS AND RABBITS COME HERE ALL THE TIME FROM OTHER SHELTERS. WE WORK WITH OTHER SHELTERS AROUND THE REGION BECAUSE THE SMALLER SHELTERS THEY TRY TO DO AS MUCH AS THEY CAN AND REACH OUT TO US. THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH THEY CAN DO. SO THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GOT HIS RECOVERY WE HAD TO TAKE HIS EYE. BUT THERE ARE SO MANY SHELTERS AND RESCUE GROUPS THAT ARE STRUGGLING BECAUSE THEY KNOW WE NEVER SAY NO. WE ALL TAKE THE TOUGH CASES. YOU HAVE FIVE PUPPIES COME INTO. TELL US ABOUT THE PUPPIES. THEY WERE ON TRANSFER FROM ANOTHER SHELTER. WE NOTICED THAT THEY WERE NOT FEELING SO WELL. WE TESTED THEM LIKE WE DO ALL OF OUR ANIMALS. ONE TESTED FOR PAR VOLUNTARY. AND THEY ALL TESTED POSITIVE FOR PARVO. THEY STARTED RECEIVING EMERGENCY CARE. THEY WERE VACCINATED BUT IT DID NOT WORK. ALL WE CAN PROVIDE IS A SUPPLEMENTAL CARE. WE LOST TWO THEM. THEY WERE NOT SHOWING ENOUGH. BUT THE OTHER THREE, THEY’RE GETTING THERE. THEY’RE STILL NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET AND THEY’RE GETTING THERE. IT UPWARD OF $35,000 FOR THE CARE OF THE PUPPY. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. LOOKING AT CALVIN HERE AND THE CARE HE NEEDED AND THEN THE RECOVERY AFTERWARDS. SO HOW CAN PEOPLE HELP? WE WOULD LOVE DONATIONS. WE’RE NONPROFIT. SO WE WORK OFF THE GENEROSITY OF THE COMMUNITY. WITH DONATIONS IF YOU WANT TO AND THE PUPPIES, IN YOU CANNOT DONATE, YOU CAN COME AND VOLUNTEER. AND YOU CAN GET TO KNOW THE ANIMALS OR FOSTER OR ADOPT. YOU CAN COME TO ONE OF OUR EVENTS ANYWAY THAT YOU CAN SUPPORT US IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. SO IS CALVIN READY TO GO AND UP FOR ADOPTION? HE’S UP FOR ADOPTION HE’S READY TO FIND A HOME. HE’S BEEN WITH US FOR A WHILE RECOVERING. AND HE’S ANXIOUS TO FIND A HOME. I THINK HE’LL DO WELL IN SOMEBODY’S HOME FOR SURE. THANK YOU FOR COMING IN. BEST OF LUCK WITH THE CARE OF THE PUPPIES.
