Christmas day, I found Mama dog, scouring areas for food for her 8 puppies. I followed her for on foot for about a mile before she led me to her cave, with the puppies crying out inside. Eyes still closed, the pups were glad to see mom, but she was so exhausted and hungry, she just nearly collapsed and let them take from her what they could. I found an open store and brought her a 25kg bag of food and a bucket of water. I’ll return in a few weeks to check on them and to see if we can provide a rescue and adoption for the puppies. I wanted to take them but we simply have no room.
