“Dumb Dog” Nurses Abandoned Pups

 

Written by Annette Norton of New Jersey

Kora came into a North Carolina shelter as a stray. She was brought there by a shelter worker and the next day she gave birth to three puppies. When the puppiesáwere about a week old, someone abandoned three other week-oldápuppies at the shelter overnight under cover of darkness.

Kora, being a gentle and kind soul, took them in as her own, but their peace was short lived. While at the shelter, they all came down with upper respiratory infections and one of Kora’s biological babies passed away.

Our New Jersey-based Wag On Inn rescue groupáregularly tours shelters in the South and Puerto Rico and brings dogs north with us where they are placed in foster homes until they are adopted. These dogs would otherwise be euthanized if they were not adopted.

The day that Kora and her now-extended family of pups wereáscheduled to leave for New Jersey with us, a callácameáin fromáKora’s owner. When the shelter staff informed her that Koraáwas just about to leave for the rescue and that she had heartworm, the woman said, “Well they can have her! I don’t want that dumb dog, I just didn’t want her killed.”

Kora is now in New Jersey under the care of Wag On Inn Rescue. She is in a foster home where her pups were seen by a veterinarian and are now on the road to recovery. Once they are eight weeks old and weaned, they will go to their forever homes and Kora will be spayed and then treated for heartworm. After that, she too will find a home who will appreciate her and give her the good things in life she deserves.á See more of Wag On Inn’s rescued dogs and learn about their work on their Facebook page or website.
