HPAN Helps HBDR with $2000
Homeward Bound Dog Rescue (HBDR) takes in a lot of needy dogs from our local area. They are known for taking in pregnant momma dogs and moms with litters. They always adopt out the puppies after they’re certified healthy and all “fixed” up. They never leave the mom dogs behind; they get good homes, too. HBDR requires two rounds of vaccines before adopting out the puppies. Recently they had 10 puppies break with parvo, even after the vaccines were administered. Merck, the vaccine company, said the vaccines must have been ineffective. They will never know for sure, but what they do know is that it is EXPENSIVE to treat parvo. One pup can run into the hundreds of dollars very quickly. HBDR has amassed a huge amount of debt caring for these 10 puppies. One thing we know is that debt stifles rescue, so we contributed $2,000 to HBDR’s enormous vet bill so they can continue to rescue in our area.
