Momma and her pups


Fluffy was a homeless kitten with a terrible kitty cold that infected her eyes and caused her to lose her sight. 
This shy mom was homeless and had her puppies under a bush. She protected them from harm and all were rescued.
Delilah had a severe leg injury with exposed bone and was brought to us by a frantic homeless man who found her. 
Momma was rescued from a hoarding situation and she was almost ready to have her pups. She was afraid of people but learned to trust.​
