mia's puppiesRemember Mia? She came in as a stray back in March and we discovered she was pregnant, with what we thought was 5 puppies. Little did we know, Mia gave birth to TEN puppies.


After giving birth, Mia started to reject her babies.  Every whimper and whine went unnoticed. Every desperate attempt to feed was met with a push or a shove away. Our once loving and happy mama Mia turned aggressive towards her human foster parents and was flat out refusing to feed her babies. We had no choice but to remove her babies and put them in a foster home where they would get the round the clock care and feeding that Mia was refusing to give them. Most people assume that mama will naturally take care of her babies, but when she doesn't it puts the babies lives in jeopardy.


We took Mia out of foster and brought her back to the shelter to give her time to decompress and to perform tests to make sure her behavior didn't have an underlying medical cause. We are happy to report that our girl was given a clean bill of health, was spayed and returned to her normal amazing self. And better yet; just last week she was adopted by the very same foster family and is doing great.


Mia's puppies are thriving and growing in foster. All ten are being bottle fed and are growing by the minute. However, the cost to feed ten puppies formula has stripped our Yelp for Help fund completely. It is so expensive and we are broke. When we took Mia in, we had no idea she was even pregnant. Who knew that after giving birth to TEN puppies, she would suffer from postpartum depression and leave us to have to feed her babies? These unknowns are what we face every single day at AWSOM and we still charge forward, knowing only that we have to help.


We are here, once again, asking for your help caring for these puppies. We are in desperate need of donations to help us pay for puppy formula and the cases of wee-wee pads they are going through. And in caring for them, we can't not have the money to not care for the other 35 dogs and over 100 cats and kittens we have in foster. It has put a great strain on our already stretched thin staff, volunteers and funds. Please, we are a small non-profit and desperately need your help.


P.S. Mia's puppies will be available for adoption in 5 weeks.

Not only do they enjoy multiple walks, plenty of treats and tons of warm cuddles from our loving staff and volunteers... ...our pups also get plenty of outdoor time—when weather permits—to lounge and play in our outdoor kennel space. But alas with continuous use and exposure to the elements, AWSOM’s outdoor kennels are starting to rust, dent, bend and break down. It’s time for a new, sturdier set of outdoor kennels for our AWSOM Angels!

Our AWSOM dogs are so happy! Please help us keep them that way and donate towards a kennel today! Click below to donate securely through PayPal.
