On Jan. 25, a cardboard box containing five puppies was left outside the Halifax Humane Society animal shelter. All of the puppies needed immediate medical attention. Unfortunately, one died before the puppies could be transported to an emergency veterinary clinic. The remaining four received blood transfusions and are undergoing medical treatments for parasites. They will be placed in foster care in hopes of a full recovery.
Emergency veterinary care, especially emergency blood transfusions, is expensive. Donations to the Emergency Medical Fund can be made at https://www.halifaxhumanesociety.org/donate.
