Parvo puppies abandoned on highway

Sick puppies dumped on Detroit highway

Last week three puppies, sick with the deadly Parvo virus, were dumped in a blue bin along a highway in Detroit, Michigan. One of the puppies did not survive the illness. After the pups were discovered, the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue penned an open letter to whoever was responsible for abandoning the puppies:

To the owner of the puppies that were dumped on the East Side of Detroit in a blue bin: All three of the puppies are sick with parvo and the female has now died from the disease. If you have more puppies in your home it’s likely that they too have parvo and will die without treatment so we are offering you the opportunity to do the right thing and bring in any other sick puppies to our vet’s office with no questions asked.

On Tuesday morning, the non-profit rescue agency indicated that the two surviving puppies (Pooh and Tigger) were showing signs of improvement:

Our sweet pups recovering from Parvo are continuing to improve! We are praying that they will continue to get better. Poor guys have been in quarantine in the hospital and will be ready to get out and play in a few days.

More about Parvo:

According to PetMD, Parvo is a highly contagious disease which more frequently impacts puppies who are between six weeks and six months old. Symptoms of the viral infection can include: Vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, and lack of appetite (anorexia). Parvo can also impact a puppy’s heart and cause death.

The Parvo virus is unfortunately hearty and it can live in the ground soil for up to a year. Dogs can become infected by the deadly virus by sniffing stool from a dog who is sick – one of the only disinfectants which is known to kill the virus is household bleach.

It is important to keep your dog properly vaccinated against this highly contagious virus.

    This is ridiculous what was the point of dropping of like that! Parvo is a very deadly virus to puppies! If like you said these little ones are sick than so is the mother! If this is what was done to the puppies I can only imagine what happened to the mother! I’m glad the surviving pups are doing ok!

    OMG & SMH…… WTF is wrong with people??? It is NEVER “OK” to abandon an animal, much less helpless puppies (really just babies)…….

    Sorry to hear one of these little angels didn’t survive but hoping for the others to get better (& be adopted into a loving “furever” home where they will be loved and treasured family members)……..

    I hope the POS who abandoned these little angels is found AND arrested for extreme animal abuse…… even better if this POS has to serve time with animal lovers (who can punish in ways that our legal system cannot)……..

    I hope the maggot who dumped these helpless puppies finds him/her self living in the gutter and dying a slow painful death and no one cares. They so well deserve it.
