UPDATE: This sweet momma and her babies went back home with their owners. Please keep in mind we still have lots of babies needing Foster Homes!

This sweet momma and her babies came in today through Animal Control, we would like for them to get out of the shelter environment as soon as possible so the babies don’t get sick. She will need a foster home until her puppies are weaned and she is ready to get spayed.

Momma is very protective over her babies so we would prefer if she went to a home with no other dogs. This process can take up to 6 to 7 weeks for the puppies to be weaned properly.

Please let us know if you would be interested in opening your home to these precious babies.🐶🐾

April FortenberryApril.....

Came in this morning? Is there not a stray hold for his owners to find him?

How long is the owner given to claim him?

Andrew Little he looks kind of like chi chi! Lol she could have a brother/friend 🤷🏼‍♀️

How can the owners find him if you adopt or foster him out ? This process doesn’t make sense .
