Praline was left by her family near death and fighting for her life.

URGENT EMERGENCY RESCUE! This very sick 5 week old 2 pound puppy Praline was an owner surrendered to a shelter in Georgia. She was surrendered due to vomiting, lethargy, and diarrhea, she has tested positive for the deadly parvovirus. This is an extremely deadly condition that if it wasn't for rescue she would die.


Second Chance Rescue NYC stepped up to tag her and she is being transported to their partner hospital now! On the way the volunteer said this baby is fading and in order to survive, she needs to be treated with aggressive supportive care. Saving sick shelter animals is very expensive, every dollar goes a long way. Can you help us save Praline?

I drew a portrait of sweet Praline to help us sponsor her care. Every Save Praline product triggers a life saving donation to care for this incredibly brave puppy fighting for her life!
