Update: Mama and puppies at kill shelter rescued

UPDATE:  Theresa Fraser with Treasured Tails Canine Rescue rescued new mama, Miko, and her five puppies this morning.

Fraser says:

Pups are 18 days, all female. … Momma is already in my lap. She was just dying for a person to give her comfort.

This is a huge undertaking for this wonderful, small 501(c)(3) rescue. Six little ones in one fell swoop. In addition and surprisingly enough, Carson charged Fraser $50 per dog – that’s $300 to save these babies; although the rescue will get $25 returned after providing evidence of their sterilization.

Donations are needed to help defray some of the astronomical costs this rescue will face. Those who can help as asked to make a tax-deductible donation by PayPal to treasuredtailsrescue@hotmail.com.


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.

A reputable rescue is needed to save the entire family unit. That means mama Miko, too.
