A picture of Tigg was shared on social media on his first day in the hospital. By the time he died, Tigg's picture had been shared over 75,000 times and he had countless people wanting to adopt him. Many of those people made donations to the rescue. Within three days, Tigg had helped to raise thousands of dollars.

None of us knew Tigg. By the time we met him he was already dying. He displayed none of the typical puppy behaviors: he was not energetic or loving or happy. He was depressed and sick. Frankly, he was pathetic. But something about him touched us. In life, he was tiny and anonymous, but he became a giant in our hearts - a hero.


This small enclosure is dedicated to Tigg's memory and is an enduring thank you to him for reminding us that you don't have to be big to be important. Right now it is a place for play - opportunities that Tigg never had - but our ultimate goal is to create a Campus for Compassion, a place for rescue and veterinary care and love, where eventually the Tigg pen could be an entire isolation area dedicated to the treatment of puppies like Tigg and for education on how to prevent this terrible disease.


Your donations will help us to achieve our dreams.

The Tigg Pen Loved by thousands, known to none


Tigg was a seven week old Pit Bull puppy who presented to Dr. Carr for treatment of Parvo. He never really had a chance. He was about as sick as parvo puppies get. He had no immune system; his white blood count was less than 100. Even at it's lowest level, the normal white blood count should be more than 6,000. He fought his disease bravely, but succumbed after three days.


That by itself is a sad story, but not that uncommon. Puppies die from parvo all the time.

But Tigg was special.
