Foster a litter of puppies
Well if you were to have asked 36 hours ago we would have said that there was more than a 90% chance we would have lost at least 3………with about 5 hours of sleep in the last 2 nights and much needed antibiotics from the vet ALL 5 puppies have made a remarkable recovery and are eating on their own!!!!!!!!! Parvo was negative but they do have Coccidia #WinifredMathildaAppleby and #BeatrixAdelaideBarin (Winnie and Bea for short) will be gracing your feed over the next couple of weeks and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you to the few that sent in donations yesterday it helped with one of our $150 vet bills for one of the pups. #stopbackyardbreeding #rescuepups #fosterpuppies #adoptdontshop #spayandneuter #bottlebaby #stopbreeding #fredsfriendsrescueADVERTISEMENT
A great way to let your family experience the wonder of puppies without contributing to canine overpopulation, you can foster an expectant mother or litter of puppies (or kittens) with the Humane Society and other rescues. Keep in mind that puppy rearing is a full time job and you may suffer some sleepless nights in the process. Of course, a few weeks of unlimited puppy snuggles are a perfect cure for what ails you.
