Three rescued puppies need your help to battle parvo

Three Great Dane puppies are beating the odds after contracting parvo.

The puppies were reportedly rescued from a backyard breeder. The five-week-old pups, Martha, Linda and Jeffrey, are being treated at Oak Knoll Animal Hospital in Moline. The surviving members of a litter of nine, staff at Oak Knoll say the puppies are holding strong and becoming more alert.

Rescued, a resale shop whose proceeds go to animal welfare in the QCA, is taking donations for their care, which is in the thousands. Donations are being accepted via PayPal here and Venmo here.
