HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - Seven puppies rescued from dangerous living conditions in August were all adopted over the weekend.
Officials with Indianapolis Animal Care and Control found the dogs at an Indianapolis home and all of the animals had been exposed to parvovirus.
Parvovirus is a highly contagious disease. When young animals are infected, they can suffer heart damage or even die.
The animals were taken to the Humane Society for Hamilton County to be treated. The puppies were placed with foster families for the duration of their treatment.
The shelter hosted a special adoption event Sunday, and within a matter of minutes, six of the pups were adopted.
The seventh puppy was also adopted by the foster family that was nursing it back to health.
