Our most recent rescue is sweet Penny and her 8 newborn puppies. This poor momma dog was forced to give birth in a dirty yard with no protection from the 110-degree heat. Her family didn't even provide her with a blanket, let alone any shelter! Penny did her best to care for her brood, digging a hole to find cooler soil. A devoted animal lover learned of the situation and rushed out to help. She found the 4-day-old babies, with eyes still closed, strewn all over the yard, and momma in distress. We can't imagine what kind of family would allow animals to suffer like this.
There was no time to think about how we would pay for this family's care--we just had to act. After a quick vet visit, Penny and her babies are now in cozy quarters and receiving support from GSROC caregivers. When she arrived, Penny was exhausted, but she is beginning to decompress. Looking into her eyes, we see relief, trust, and gratitude.
Your gift during Sheptember Match will help Penny and dogs just like her during their darkest times.
