I saw both litters of puppies in the video below in the lobby this morning as I was heading to the clinic for my daily dose of cute. I asked the human parents how they came across such sweet little ones – their stories are the kind we hear all too often. The first Good Samaritan told me that she woke up to find a box of Labrador puppies on her doorstep. The other said that she found the box of Schnauzer/Pit Bull puppies in her neighbor’s yard, without food or water. They were relinquished with no argument from the uninterested owner.
While I reap the benefits of hugs, kisses, and puppy breath – these little lives are an all-too-cute example of dogs that were not wanted or planned for by a family committed to caring for a new pet.
Not wanting to put additional burned on our already crowded shelter system, both foster parents have decided that they will care for the little ones until they can place them in loving permanent homes. They are committed to getting all of the dogs spayed/neutered, knowing that is the only way to end the cycle of unwanted litters in our community.
