Austin Pets Alive!’s Parvo Program


APA!’s Parvo Program: Signs of parvovirus infection once meant immediate and absolute euthanasia for puppies and dogs at the city shelter. The first of its kind in the nation, Austin Pets Alive!’s Parvo Puppy ICU now gives these dogs a fighting chance. The disease takes about a week to treat and once they are free of parvo, these amazing pups go on to lead normal, healthy lives and are highly adoptable! Watching these puppies go from being on death’s door to playing and eating again is what keeps our volunteers coming back to help treat them. Each parvo puppy costs APA! about $200 to treat, so the number of lives APA! can save is directly related to donated supplies and funds that come through.

The Parvo Puppy ICU  saves around 600 puppies yearly and has rescued more than 4,000 puppies from death at other shelters.
