The Sacramento SPCA is closed temporarily due the COVID-19 outbreak, so we are not sharing the usual pet of the week stories with you for a while. Instead, the SPCA is sharing heartwarming stories of animals being fostered in the region until the shelter is open once again and ready for you to visit. Here's once such story:
Darla, a two month old "small breed" mix, was surrendered to the Sacramento SPCA after testing positive for Parvovirus. Parvo is a potentially deadly virus that is extremely contagious among dogs. The shelter medicine team at the SPCA prescribed medication, as well as complete isolation-- Darla was in quarantine before it was mainstream! After a week, she was completely recovered and has tested negative for Parvo.
She is now in a foster home being socialized with people, other dogs, and kitties. And as puppies are want to do sometimes, she seems to have taken on the new hobby of reupholstering the couch in her foster parents home-- Rutroh!
