Zip, Zap and Sentaro vs Parvo

Wednesday and Thursday this past week, our rescue picked up these three brothers from Garland, TX. The two creams were at the shelter, positive for mange, and the B&T was found by a resident. They're all, unfortunately, the product of terribly irresponsible breeders, who decided to not take care of them and dump these 7-9 month old pups in the middle of nowhere. Besides mange, these puppies have hookworm, roundworm, scabs, and just recently, Parvo.

Parvovirus, for those that aren't familiar, is a particularly nasty disease that has an 80% fatality rate and causes gastrointestinal tract damage as well as a few other things. In laymans terms, these poor dogs get the worst intestine destroying flu, to say the least. All three of them right now are fighting for their lives at two different vets, and we, the Shiba Inu Rescue of Texas, need your help.

Our rescue has gotten by in the past with privately donated funds, but these guys need a fighting chance and unfortunately, our pockets are not endless. Even you can only spare $5, it would mean the world to us and to these puppies. Our PayPal email is and every little bit helps.

If you decide not to donate, that is also okay. Please only support responsible breeders and keep your animals up to date on all of their vaccinations.

(Next up are those pictures and cookie recipes I promised. Stay tuned!)
