Austin Pets Alive!'s Parvo Program saves lives of puppies / dogs in shelters that once would be immediately euthanize when they showed signs of the Parvo infection. ATX now calls in Austin Pets Alive! and gives the same day deadline to pick up the puppies and start treatment. The disease takes about a week to treat and once they are free of parvo, these amazing pups go on to lead normal, healthy lives and are highly adoptable! Each parvo puppy costs APA! about $250 to treat, so the number of lives APA! can save is directly related to donated supplies and funds that come through.

APA!’s Parvo Program has over an 90% save rate (mentioned in the video) – impressive considering most puppies arrive well after the recommended start time for treatment.
