WACO, TX — The Humane Society of Central Texas went above and beyond to save a puppy with parvo.

The animal shelter said that when a puppy came into their facilities with parvo, they jumped into action.

Parvo is curable in most cases, they said, but they do not have the facilities needed to care for parvo-stricken pets. This is why they called Austin's Pets Alive!

Staff at the animal shelter brought the puppy in a van to the shelter. After the drop off, they stripped the van, sanitzed it - and they said it's ready to roll.

"Why did we make such an effort to save one little life? Because #EveryWacoDogDeservesAChance, even the sick ones!" the animal shelter said.
