Husky Mom and her Puppies... half her puppies froze to death!
Note: The very last picture can be offending to some, please do not view if you prefer not to see the graphic images of what happens when people just think it is OK to leave their dogs outside 24/7. We did opt to post the photos of the dead puppies.

These pups and momma dog are located in NC.

This is the email we received from the rescue we are taking her from:

“I received a call yesterday evening, 010210, from a man that had taken his neighbor's dog and her puppies. He said that he noticed that she was pregnant about two weeks ago. He finally was able to get Animal Control to come out on his neighbors a couple of months ago since the dog had been tied up at the tree without any coverage, she was exposed to rain, etc. Animal control had them to put in a dog house for her then that was the end. He, the man that contacted me, put in pine straw for her when he found out that she was pregnant and been keeping an eye on her. He is out of a job and could not afford to take the dog and care for her himself. The first picture was taken from his back yard showing her dog house.

The man that called me had checked on her yesterday and found this situation.

He thinks the dog had her pups on New Years day since the day before was the last time he had checked on her. He found over half of the pups dead, frozen to death. He took the dog and put her on his enclosed back porch and then started calling for help. We were his last hope since one organization told him to walk away!

I visit and took these pics and took some can and dry food. Went back later and took a lot of more can and dry food, and a nicer place for her to stay in on the porch, and made sure that he would hold her and the pups until we could find a rescue group to take them. He understood that they can not be move right now and he is okay with this as long as we provide the food for her. It was a situation hat he said he could not turn his back on and will work with us. I feel he will do what is right to help.

The mom is a very skinny, husky mix with one blue and one brown eye. Very sweet and scared. By looking at her teeth, she appears to be around a year old, and probably her first liter of pups.”

We got the email and immediately agreed to take in the mom and her remaining 5 puppies. She has no vetting, and neither do her puppies. We will need to arrange a special transport, for just her and the pups, so they do not have to endure a transport with other dogs. This momma has been stressed out enough already.

The transport alone will be rather expensive, since it will be just for this momma and pups. We will then need to vet the momma, and all the puppies.

Her story broke our hearts, and we are so glad that we’re able to help. If you can donate anything to this sad family, please donate through the urgent dog fund above, and note that it is for the Husky Family.

We also need supplies to give to the foster mom that will be taking in this family. If anyone has things to donate, such as towels and blankets, puppy food, milk replacer, newspaper, a whelping box, food dishes, etc, please drop us an email to and we can give you the address to send the supplies to, and we will pass them along to the foster. Thank you!

We will post new pictures as soon as we have them.
