Foster Volunteers Saved the Lives of FIve Abanonded Puppies
When a litter of five day-old puppies found themselves abandoned by their mother in early December, Larimer Humane Society was there when they needed us the most. The future of five Border Collie mix puppies was uncertain when their mother stopped feeding them. Concerned and unsure how to care for these puppies at just five days old, the owner turned to us. When the puppies were surrendered to us our dedicated staff and foster volunteers jumped into action to provide these puppies with a second chance.
Our shelter was the best place for these puppies to find a second chance but also put them at risk of disease. Just like human babies, puppies are incredibly susceptible to disease, which can spread quickly in a shelter environment. Lucky for these puppies Larimer Humane Society has a team of dedicated and compassionate Foster Care Volunteers who were ready and able to open their hearts and homes to these puppies in their time of need. Within just two hours of the puppies entering our shelter they were placed with loving temporary foster families who were willing to do whatever it took to help these puppies thrive.
