Abandoned dog lost her puppies at birth
She lived the cruelest test a mother can know: the loss of her babies. This Abandoned dog was living at the Mommy and Me Rescue Refuge in Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania.
She had been abandoned by her former owner while she was pregnant. The shelter team, including Carol Kalinowski, did everything to make her feel serene and happy, but sadly she turned out to be sick. She was suffering from trichuriasis and Lyme disease, which caused her pups to be born very prematurely.
None of the 7 puppies survived … Devastated by the death of her babies, Dorothy also had to be hospitalized. The poor dog did not stop crying while desperately searching for her little ones.
Meanwhile, at another shelter in the city, the Wanna-Be Pet Rescue, Rebecca Hetherington hosted 2 orphaned kittens, only a few weeks old. They really need a mom.
Carol Kalinowski then had the idea and contact Rebecca Hetherington to put the 3 animals together and see if links could be created between them.
When Dorothy met the kittens for the first time, she first seemed confused, not knowing what to do with these little beings. Then her maternal instinct was expressed …
She let the young felines approach her and snuggle up against her, and she instinctively protected and licked them.
Now, this little family is spending happy days with Carol and her husband Anthony, who are busy feeding the kittens with goat milk while Dorothy fully assumes her role as a surrogate mother. A situation that has soothed and allows her to better live the mourning.
Dorothy was extremely sad as she just lost her 7 puppies at birth. For their part, 2 kittens were just as lost because they no longer had their mother. Their meeting was fabulous. As you can see in the photos.
