The SPCA West would like to clarify our position. We are not in the business of taking pets away from their families. We had nothing to do with the initial choice that was made by Marley’s owner to sign her surrender papers in the hope of getting her the treatment that she desperately needs. We got a call to save a life and that is exactly what we are trying to do.
If Marley makes it through and survives the parvo, we will follow the Preventive Care Protocol as we do with the thousands of animals that we save every year. We will continue her treatment as long as it is needed, we will oversee her rehabilitation, we will have her followed up by a veterinarian, will ensure she is sterilised, vaccinated and microchipped like all of the animals in our care and then, once she is cleared, Marley will be available for adoption.
Her original owners, if qualified, will be eligible to apply for her adoption. Considering the number of animals we save every year and the number of requests we receive, we can not stray from a protocol that has been time-tested and proven effective in the rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming of over 2000 animals every year.
The reality that Marley will even survive is still a question and until her life is no longer in such a precarious situation, the SPCA West’s sole focus will be to save Marley from dying. The SPCA West needs the continued support of the public.
Marley needs the public, she needs positive energy and love, not slander and hate.
Please donate to her cause.
