I just received a distressing email from a friend, whose friend is helping out at a dog shelter.
Please read below and email Sophia to help if you can!
“As some of you might know, I’m helping a dog shelter out and recently they rescued some strays that were facing poisoning by pest control; one of which was a pregnant dog. She gave birth to 9 delightful pups 2 days ago and now needs a foster home urgently.
The reason that she is unable to be housed at the shelter is because she cannot be vaccinated in her current condition and it will not be safe for the health of her nor her pups at the shelter. ( the shelter houses 120 dogs)
She is currently at the vet but is no longer able to stay there due to the mounting vet fees but more importantly she and her pups are caged up and she has no room to move around nor stretch her limbs sufficiently for proper blood circulation.
She has a clean bill of health and is now looking for a kind soul that will be able to take her and her pups in for 2.5months but we will be grateful even if it is only for a month. The pups will not be too much trouble as she does all the cleaning and feeding. She will need a warm bed and be fed 4 times a day. In the meantime, we’ll be fervently looking for adopters.
I’ve enclosed a couple of pictures that I took today. Though a stray, she’s very gentle and sweet :)
It would be terrific if any of you could take her in, if not please help me to share this email with friends who might have the capacity to foster them.
Should you need more information, please let me know and thanks a mil!
