In November a local vet got a call from a social worker. One of her clients was living in a homeless camp and her dog had a litter of 9 puppies. The social worker was afraid that if she didn’t help to find homes for the puppies there would soon be 11 dogs in the camp, including the mother and father of the pups. The vet contacted SAFE animal rescue and the owner of the mother dog agreed to give up 4 of the puppies. Elvis, Smokey, Jackson, and Tico have been given their first puppy boosters and neutered, and will be available for adoption this weekend so they can celebrate Christmas in their forever homes.
