This is our reality this week. This is the truth. We were contacted by the owner of the mother dog to come take these unwanted puppies who were living underneath her trailer and the mom who wouldn't stay in her yard and kept roaming the neighborhood. We were not prepared for this. Originally it was going to be an assessment so that we could see if another rescue would take them but understandably, they could not be left behind. There are no words for the condition these puppies are in. They are all fighting for their lives as we speak but one is in especially bad condition and not doing well. We have NEVER seen more fleas and ticks on a litter in our lives. Trish and her family are working tirelessly to save them and make them comfortable. All of her family members pitched in last night to clean these babies up as quickly as possible. Baths, capstar, more baths. We are angry. Upset, frustrated, and angry that someone would let this happen to this family on their watch no matter the situation. This family that they allowed to be born into the world (actually, the second litter to this momma). There is never an excuse for this kind of neglect. We are glad we were contacted and were able to help (for the animals' sake) but PLEASE everyone. Fix your animals so that things like this don't happen. If you can't care for a dog, please don't have one. Sometimes it's really as simple as that. If you would like to help us care for these puppies and others, please consider donating. We will need some help with this family as our resources are exhausted. Here is our paypal donation link. All donations are tax deductible as we are a 501c3 non-profit rescue. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=ATGQHKTWWHWQN Thank you.
