RDR is taking a little hiatus and we are not actively in-taking right now. However we are still very much active and we are actively fundraising, etc.
As always thank you so much for your support.
More puppies :)
I have up to 8 puppies coming from a cruelty case. Momma and her pups chained in a backyard in TN, no shelter, intentionally starved. Pups are ok - momma is not and 12 counts of animal cruelty are being brought up against the owner. They were literally living among garbage in the backyard and the momma found a hole in the wooden floor of a nearby shed where the puppies would go to get out of the heat. I have another rescue taking the momma dog - she cannot leave the jurisdiction - so she is SAFE. The puppies can leave. All are going to the vet today.
Puppies cannot leave for another 2 weeks though due to only being 6 wks right now. I don't know the breakdown of the girls versus boys. The rescue who is taking momma is there now getting all of them. I am saying "up to 8 puppies" because they can't find 3 of the puppies as of right now. They had to tear up the floor to get to the others. They are taking mom and the pups they do have to the vet now and will be coming back with a crowbar to rip up the rest of the floor.
I need fosters. Keeping them in pairs is optimal both for their mental health and YOURS (they will keep each other occupied)
