Nov 22: BAD & GOOD NEWS WARNING- Doberman Rescue of Nevada was contacted on Halloween about a 2-year-old female Doberman the rescue named Athena and her litter of 4.5-week-old puppies. Diagnosed with parvo, they had to be surrendered because the owners couldn’t afford treatment. The rescue and the vet went above and beyond, but all the puppies, except one, succumbed to the parvo.

We have given them two grants to help defray those high costs. We hope Gabe’s future is as bright as the sun and stars.
