Winnie, July, 2001
This cute little chocolate drop was abandoned in a night depository at the San-Lee Shelter in North Carolina. When shelter workers arrived in the morning, they found the lethargic puppy and promptly placed her in an isolation pen.
Later that day, a kindly registered nurse happened to walk by. Noticing the sickly pup, she quickly made arrangements to have Winnie released. Her first stop was at her veterinarian's office. It was close to closing time, but they quickly diagnosed Parvo and inserted a catheter. Because of her medical training, the rescuer was able to provide the supportive care that Winnie needed at her home.
After three long days on IV fluids, Winnie was able to keep food down and began producing formed stools. She was well on her way to recovery.
The rescuer contacted Chatham Animal Rescue and Education, Inc. They were unable to help her with funding, but encouraged her to contact LABMED. We were happy to be able to assist with funds.
Just a month after her illness, Winnie was adopted by a young couple. She was spayed prior to going to her new home. What a happy ending!
