Ok....should I do it? Would YOU do it?

K guys....I need input. I'm going to give you my situation, and I want to know how many of YOU would do this.....


I got a call form my local vet emergency clinic (that I have fostered and placed many pits for in the past) cause they all know me as the 'pitbull lady' lol.....well anyway....they have two lil renosed pitty pups that were surrendered over to their Largo office, that are a light positive for parvo. The Dr. at my local facility is willing to treat the lil guys (it'll be out-patient treatment, sub-q fluids, injections, etc.) for free, BUT, someone has to take the lil chocolate$ in and foster them....and if no one does....they get PTS. The Dr. advised me that they are in the very early stages, and he feels that with the out-patient care, they'll pull through just fine. Ok....I am an employee of a vet hospital so I am fully aware how dangerous and easily spread parvo is, but the adult dogs in my household are well into their series of annual vaccinations, and would be safe against the virus. Of course if I DID take the squirts home to foster, i'd have them isolated, and keep bleach on hand and A-33 to keep everything clean.

How many of you guys would take this on? I'm such a sucker.... :sad:

Of course you should take them. So have they taken over your house yet? lol

I don't understand these vets who get a dog dumped on them and if someon else doesn't take them they'll put them down. They have the space and resources to foster and care for the animals until a new home can be found, yet they threaten to PTS. I don't know how many times I've heard vets say this crap.
