When Danny Dolneck and his girlfriend Christina Mill got a new apartment that allowed animals, they couldn’t wait to adopt some puppies to add to their growing family. They arrived at the pet store and met their new fur babies. They instantly fell head-over-heels in love with two adorable pups named Fenway and Riot.
Their warm and fuzzy feelings only lasted a few hours, however. Before they even had a chance to get to know their new babies, Fenway started acting strangely. Soon, Riot was showing the same symptoms.
THEIR WORST NIGHTMARE
Of course, Danny and Christina rushed the ailing pups to the vet right away, only to get the worst news ever. Both of the dogs have the dreaded Canine Parvovirus.
Parvo is a terrible intestinal virus that dogs are supposed to be inoculated against within the first six to eight weeks. It is horribly dangerous and frequently fatal, and it’s highly contagious, as well. Canine Parvo is spread easily through contact with feces, and the bacteria that cause it can hang around on surfaces for weeks.
Suddenly, Danny and Christina’s bliss had quickly turned into a nightmare of epic proportions.
The couple adopted the pups from Pawsafe Animal Rescue at an adoption fair held at Choice Pets in Carmel, New York. Danny contacted Pawsafe and told them what was going on. Their response is beyond disgusting.
The vet told Danny that since they caught it early, the dogs have a chance. So Danny decided then and there that whatever it takes, he will save his new fur babies. He contacted Pawsafe to alert them that his dogs were infected as they were in a cage with many other animals.
Danny’s concern was double-sided. He wanted answers as to how they could allow a sick dog to get adopted, and he also wanted to make sure that the group tested the other animals before hundreds of dogs fall ill.
The agencies response was abhorrent. They told Danny that the other dogs were no longer available, so there was no need for testing. Then the group added that they wouldn’t help cover the funds of saving the dogs, but they will pay for cremation after he has them put down.
But wait, the group was not done there, either.
This “rescue agency” then had the nerve to call the vet and attempt to come and pick up the dogs. This group tried to steal the dogs back so it could put them down itself. It doesn’t get more evil than that.
Sadly, that’s not all the agency lied about, either. After they told Danny that the other dogs were no longer available, he worried that might not be true. To test his theory, he filled out another application for one of the remaining pups.
Lie on top of lie on top of lie.
SAVE THE PUPPIES
The group has another event set up in the same location for June 16th. If you live in the area, please do not attend and keep your pets out of that store, as Parvo is highly contagious.
As for Fenway and Riot, they are in quarantine at the vet and receiving the best care possible. They are both holding on with their parents at home wringing their hands in worry. Danny contacted me because he doesn’t want this to happen to anyone else and he wants those other dogs tested and treated before they become symptomatic.
The vet bill is going to be in the thousands. Danny already sold a treasured pin collection to help pay for the cost, but they need a little more help.

Share this article so people know that they definitely should not work with Pawsafe Animal Rescue. For now, people should also stay far away from Choice Pets in Carmel, New York, as well. Again, the virus tends to hang out for weeks.
Share this to warn your friends about this horrible adoption agency.
UPDATE: Fenway has passed on due to the virus.
