This mama dog was impounded by MAS yesterday. She appears to have a live litter on the ground somewhere, most likely in the area where she was picked up, which is unknown. That MAS would impound this dog without her pups is unfathomable to me. Where are the pups? This dog may have an owner or she may be a stray but she definitely appears to have a litter of pups who need her.
The pound is closed today and tomorrow. Unless a search can be conducted in the area where mama was picked up today, I fear there is no hope for the pups’ survival. I believe mama dog is suffering physically and emotionally at the pound right now due to the abrupt separation from her family. Is there anyone who can access MAS when the place is closed that can help? Mama dog’s ID # is 239268. Her listing on PetHarbor can be seen here.
Added: I’m adding a photo of the portion of this dog’s kennel card which shows that her intake type is listed as “Stray/OTC”.
Update: Claire left a comment indicating this dog was a stray brought to the shelter by Good Sams who saw her get left at a park by people who drove away. The Good Sams reportedly saw no pups. There is still a litter in need somewhere and this mama dog is still physically and emotionally suffering. I hope she is receiving the around the clock care she needs. I will be happy to buy her a soft bed to lay on if MAS will give it to her. Just let me know.
