The phrase “it takes a village” is so true in the rescue world. It takes a lot of hands of angels who are dedicated advocates to save the dogs. <3
Momma Tasha was dumped out in a rural area in north MS with who we think was her boyfriend. They hung around a small country neighborhood for a few days until one of the neighbors heard a gunshot. The male dog was never seen again. 🙁
The neighbor called Sandy who runs a shelter and asked her to come get the pregnant dog before she gets shot as well. 🙁 Sandy called our rescue partner, Jane Tate Ashe. Susan Sanders runs the City Of Hernando Animal Shelter. She had a foster who loves shepherds and agreed to foster her for us. She kept her through the birth and until the pups were about 5 wks old. At this point, Wendy Duron and her husband David took over and took care of Momma and pups until they could be transported up here.
It isn’t often that we know the birthdays, but we do in this case. Pups were born 4/8/19. Momma is a 2 yo shep mix weighing about 50 lbs. If you are interested in Tasha, Please fill out an application, which can be found on our website www.careofdc.org
