Skye, a pregnant stray, was brought in just before Christmas, and had her puppies safely, here at KCHF. At 6 weeks her puppies came down with parvo, most likely because Skye was carrying it. They were all intensely hospitalized for 2 weeks at the Coyne Vet Center of Crown Point. We did lose 1, but the other 7 have returned and are in search of homes! The bill for these guys is an upwards of $8,000- so our friends at On the Rox are giving their best effort to offset that cost as best as we can!
On the Rox in Kankakee will be hosting another bar fundraiser in the name of the dogs! We will be there March 10, starting at 7:00PM! $10 at the door gets you a 'Pints for Parvo' cup, where you can drink from a keg of Coors Light until it's out! Food will also be provided. We will have tons of great baskets for our silent auction, as well as a 50/50 raffle!
Even if you aren't able to attend, we hope you'll consider donating some money to help with the costs of saving these lives.
