This new mama just had pups on 3/15! She is very scared at the shelter and worried about her kids. She is in a kennel in the quarantine room where they house bite cases, dangerous dog cases, and dogs that aren't getting along with other dogs. She needs a foster home to raise her pups in until they are weaned and can move to other foster homes. Can you help this sweet mama out?

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
