It is always a tough pill to swallow when a dog is dumped outside of the shelter, but we about choke when seven small puppies are dumped. I know many would think that at least they dumped them on the outdoor ramp to the shelter, but in this case, the babies were in a travel crate filled with feces and urine. They were soaked in it. The veterinarian estimated they had been trapped inside the crate for days. Panting from the heat, they were starved and abused. Yes, I am glad the abuser dumped them so they never have to suffer again, but the questions will forever linger in my mind. Why were they treated so poorly and why won’t people spay/neuter their dog or even have one to begin with? What’s the point?
So now, meet the Alaska pups: Fairbanks, Anchorage, Nikiski, Alakanuk, Juneau, Sterling and Hoonah. Here they all are upon intake. Your bad days are over sweet pups.
The shelter is full, so please give toward our $70,000 matching grant today to help us take care of our new and unexpected residents. Please give.
