Volunteers with the Lawrence County Humane Society say they are urgently in need of help.
According to a Facebook post by the humane society, several puppies at the shelter have broken out with the parvo virus over the past week.
These dogs are being treated but money is needed for the vet bills that will incur.
At least $2,500 in vet bills are anticipated – money shelter officials say is not on hand.
