While out for a walk in nature, it’s not uncommon to see signs of life, like small animals, rodents, insects, etc. However, most people wouldn’t expect to find a dog and her new puppies all alone on the ground, but that’s exactly what one person discovered.
While in a “wooded area,” neat Charlotte, NC, someone discovered a mama dog lying on the ground surrounded by puppies. They immediately texted Angela, the founder of Angela’s Ark nonprofit animal rescue. Angela is used to receiving calls for animals in need, but she wasn’t expecting to find a seemingly healthy mama dog and her healthy pups abandoned and alone in the woods.
Angela arrived at the wooded area and found the mama dog and her 11 puppies. The mother dog looks tired and ᴇxʜᴀᴜsᴛᴇᴅ. This makes the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ process easier because they are not strong enough to ꜰɪɢʜᴛ back when taken away. Fortunately, all the dogs seemed healthy and happy, although the mother dog was a bit wary at first.
Regarding the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ day, Angela said in her Instagram post, “there are times in ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ when you look back on a day and everything felt strangely meant to be. Today was definitely one of those days.”
The mother dog and 11 puppies all seem to be healthy and thriving under Angela’s care. They are regularly examined by a veterinarian. Angela shared on Instagram, “it is truly a miracle that these littles ones are doing as great as they are given the position they were in just a few short weeks ago.”
Angela’s Ark is a Charlotte, NC based 501(c)3 nonprofit animal ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and raise awareness for animals in need with an Ark style “all animals on board” approach. Their efforts range from wildlife rehabilitation, giving ᴀʙᴜsᴇᴅ and neglected animals a second chance at life, helping with spay/neuter efforts throughout their community, and more.
Thanks to their mission and dedication to seeing it through, all 12 dogs now have a second chance at life. Once big and beautiful enough, the puppies are adopted into loving permanent homes.
