Grey Bruce Animal Shelter offers a safe place for pets that have no choices left.
“Sometimes, their owners have had no choice either. They, too, may have aged and had to move into a facility where their loved companions are not allowed or, in the final step of life, may have died leaving their pets behind,” says Shelter Manager, Deb Takeda. “Whatever the reason, these faithful friends have no choice but to wait … wait for someone new to take them in and love them.”
Sometimes too, however, they come from very unusual circumstances that are unfair for anyone, human or otherwise.
One of the shelter’s recent surrenders had EIGHT puppies on Friday, January 27th. Mom, Hazel, was rescued from a bad situation and, as it turned out, she was pregnant when she arrived at the shelter. She and her newly arrived puppies are now temporarily in a loving foster home.
“While we love puppies and kittens, we just wish more people would get their pets neutered,” says Shelter Manager, Deb Takeda. “We are so glad that we could help out with Hazel … but how many others are out there?”😢
On the bright side, Mom and puppies are doing well and will return to the shelter in a couple of months when ‘babies’ are old enough to go to new homes.
