DAVENPORT, Iowa – A little over a month after many of the community shared their hearts and wallets to help a pint-sized rat terrier, Trippa has found a fur-ever home.

The small stray came limping into the Humane Society of Scott County suffering from the life-threatening Parvo virus and in jeopardy of losing a leg. Veterinarians had originally told the HSSC that Trippa’s leg was shattered beyond repair and needed to be amputated.

The leg may have been amputated, but her Parvo virus treatment delayed the surgery, allowing the bones to repair themselves.

According to Teresa LaBella, of the HSSC, her new pet parents will be signing the adoption papers Friday, July 7th, bringing Trippa’s shelter dog sister along with her.

The generous funds received from the community have been set aside in a special Trippa Fund to care for future animals in need of medical attention.
