Scared, protective new mama and puppies need a rescue from kill-shelter

Click here for update.

Carson, Calif. – A Chihuahua-Pekingese mix with the cutest underbite became a mama in the shelter. The compassionate ladies who run the facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, walked the aisles and halls of Carson shelter on Nov. 23 and spotted the mama and her newborns and put out an alert on Nov. 23.

Named Miko, she was surrendered to the shelter by her family of 5 years. The reason? They were moving.

Now, her fate, and the fate of her newborn babies, are entirely dependent on a rescue that can take them. Miko appears to be completely bewildered and terrified at her sudden change in circumstances. Worse, now she has the added task of trying desperately to protect her babies. That’s not a position any new mama – whatever the species – wants to be in.
