It was freezing cold with Stray Rescue St. Louis got the call about a dog who was hiding with her puppies in a vacant house. How she found the house is unknown but thankfully, the clever mother knew her puppies needed protection from the cold.
Although the dogs had shelter, the cold house was no place for a momma dog and a litter of newborn puppies so shelter workers got to work trying to rescue them all. They were not sure what the situation would be but thankfully, they had got there in time.
The mother obviously needed help and nourishment to keep her puppies alive and despite her fear, she gradually allowed rescue workers to help her. She could have been aggressive in protecting her puppies but instead, she was grateful for the help.
Once they secured the momma and could lead her out of the house, they could get to work locating the puppies who were buried in rubbish in the house. Their momma had done a good job of trying to keep them warm despite the freezing temperature.
Once they had them out of the house, they were reunited with their sweet mother, and all were warm for probably the first time in their very young lives. Thankfully, the rescuers probably saved the lives of all the babies.
Thanks to the hard work of Stray Rescue St. Louis, they saved many lives. And, one day they will help the adorable puppies and their mother find forever homes of their own.
There was no way that the puppies could have ever grown up and found a family to love on their own even though their mother did the best she could given the circumstances she found herself in.
We are so thankful to all the rescue workers who go out in the cold, rain, snow…whatever the difficult conditions to help save the dogs that need them so bad. Without all their hard work, so many wonderful dogs would be lost forever.
