Stella the homeless dog was heavily pregnant when she was found crying and begging for food on the rough streets of Texas, writes ilovemydogsomuch
he desolate pooch was living under cars for shelter and was visibly troubled by the uncertainty prevailing over the fate of her unborn babies. When the workers of North Fork Animal Welfare League (NFAWL) learned about Stella, they immediately took her in.
The NFAWL staff took Stella to a vet for necessary medical examination. As per the size of the puppies in the X-ray, the vet was sure that the litter would arrive within the next 2 weeks. So the workers made Stella comfortable in a quiet and cozy room at the shelter. Little did they know she would be going into labor the very next morning!
As it turned out, the feeling of safety and security at the shelter was enough to induce Stella’s stress-free labor. The workers diligently watched over her as she gave birth to 8 puppies within a couple of hours. Being the shelter’s first litter in over 20 years, this was definitely a gratifying moment for everybody!
The shelter has reached out to the public for financial aid to help them do justice to the weakened mama and her litter. Stella needs extra nutrition to be able to raise her puppies well, while the cost of vaccinating and spaying/neutering the litter is also going to be high.
