Dog With 10 Newborn Puppies Abandoned At A Shelter’s Doorstep

The staff at the Sacramento SPCA showed up to a surprise at their doorstep one morning: a mama pit bull and puppies with no owner in sight. Thanks to mom, they’d all survived to this point. But a lot of things would have to come together for this sweet family…

Dumped on the doorstep of the Sacramento SPCA was a pit bull and her 10 newborn pups.

All signs indicated that they had been dropped off just moments after birth. The family was abandoned with no food or water.

The mother was not chained and could’ve wandered off without her puppies… but she didn’t. Her maternal instincts kept her by their side.

The shelter was happy to have them but nervous about the fostering situation as the pups could not yet be separated from their mother.

But one man was thrilled to take on the family as their foster dad! He created this spot for mom to nurse her babies and keep them warm.

After everything this mama had been through, she had the sweetest demeanor and allowed her puppies to be handled.

The family will stay at their foster home for a few months until they are able to be separated and adopted out.

Until then, foster dad will continue to care for them and have fun posting pictures to his social media accounts. 🙂

I’ll never understand how someone could just throw out a mother and her newborns. Thanks to mama, the Sacramento SPCA, and their foster dad, they’ll have the love and care in place until they find permanent homes.
