Parvo Treatment Center is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that provides low-cost, high-quality treatment to dogs and puppies affected by Parvo.
Few diseases strike as much fear in the heart of animal shelters and rescues as Parvo. An acute and highly contagious virus, Parvo can affect all dogs but is most likely to infect unvaccinated dogs and puppies younger than four months – the animals that are most likely to end up in shelters. Without treatment, the mortality rate for Parvo is as high as 90%. With proper treatment that rate drops significantly, but treatment can be expensive, lengthy and beyond the means of underfunded, overcrowded shelters and rescues. As a result, it’s not uncommon for shelters to not only euthanize dogs displaying symptoms but to euthanize symptom-free dogs that may have been exposed to the virus – all in an effort to prevent the disease from spreading to healthy animals.
Pearland Parvo Recovery Center (PPRC) was founded in August 2019 by six animal rescue volunteers with over 56 years of combined experience in fostering dogs and puppies from animal shelters in the greater Houston area. After years of witnessing first-hand the toll that this virus took on shelters and rescues – in terms of both costs and lives lost – they decided to do something about it.
In 2023, after treating over 1100 dogs, PPRC moved into a new facility, expanded its services, and divided into two organizations. The new organization located in our new facility is called Parvo Treatment Center (PTC) and provides medical care for dogs and puppies suffering from Parvo. PPRC (original organization) now provides recovery quarantine options to rescues once the parvo pups no longer have the clinical symptoms. The PPRC recovery facilities work with the rescues to provide medical fostering for dogs and puppies while they are still contagious and recovering from parvo.
