Rosa is a 10 month old Pitbull mix puppy that HEART pulled from a local shelter last week. She seemed like a normal, happy puppy for the first few days. Then her foster Mom noticed something wasn 't right! She started vomiting, having diarrhea & she lost her appetite. She saw our Veterinarian where she was diagnosed with the Parvo Virus. Parvo is an expensive ailment to treat. Rosa will need to be hospitalized on IV fluids & IV medications until she is no longer vomiting. We are obviously hoping she won 't have to be hospitalized for long but we will do whatever we can to help her...& in turn we are asking for your help through donations to help pay for her treatment. Any left-over funds will go to her spay surgery once she is well enough & if there are still funds leftover, the money will be used to spay & neuter other animals in our organization. Thank you so much for your support!!! To make a donation by check to help Rosa, you can send a check written to HEART, Inc to HEART Animal Rescue at PO Box 415, Hamburg, NY 14075.
