Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Dog With 7 Puppies were Found Tied to a Bicycle Rack


--by LiliAB, posted Mar 19, 2017
My soon-to-be daughter-in-law Maria, who lives in Raleigh, NC, found a mother mixed breed dog tied up to a bicycle rack with 7 puppies near her in a large tub.

Now, three weeks later, she has found homes for Momma "Minnie Moo" and her puppies. Maria brought the puppies to a no-kill shelter where they were all held together until the puppies were ready to be weaned and adopted. They were also flea dipped and vaccinated, and Mama dog was spayed. Then Maria put up flyers and spoke with family and friends at church and in their community. She raised $500 for the shelter in donations for their "stay".

I am grateful for her persistence in turning what could have been a tragedy into a dog wagging (p)aw-esome ending. πŸΎπŸ’•πŸΎπŸ’•
