When K9 Crusaders rescued Noelle from the shelter where she had been dropped off by someone claiming to have found her as a stray, they realized she had a tragic backstory. Despite her emaciation, she had clearly just given birth. On Facebook, the Canadian rescue K9 noted, “She had obviously been feeding her puppies, but nobody had been feeding her.” The question was, where had her children gone? K9 Crusaders set out to seek down the puppies by collaborating with local animal rescue organisations. “Noelle’s profile came to us on December 7th from a QC gas pound where she had been surrendered by someone who claimed to have found her as a stray,” K9 Crusaders reported. She was completely engorged and still producing milk, and it was plain that this poor Mama had been torn away from her children in a hurry. “Her haunting eyes and sorrowful situation left few unbroken hearts among those of us who read her story since she was so upset.”
“She arrived the next day, skin and bones, weighing barely over 30 pounds, at least 15-20 pounds under a healthy weight, and every single rib was exposed.” She had evidently been feeding her children, but she had not been fed.” “From the shelter workers to the transport drivers, to the medical professionals, our own volunteers, and, of course, her foster family, Noelle’s charming and gentle attitude immediately won over everyone she met.” Every time we looked into her eyes, we could feel her anguish, and there was no doubt that she was missing her children. “Of course, many of you were concerned about the puppies, wondering whether they had been abandoned and if they were safe.
Thankfully, the incredible people who work in the rescue were all on the same page, and Noelle’s story took am incredible turn when a highly suspicious ad was noticed on a buy and sell portal, which included a photo of Noelle and her puppies. The poster claimed that Noelle had passed away after giving birth and that they were now seeking to find homes for her puppies, but the truth was considerably more sinister, since the individual selling these puppies had left Noelle at the shelter.” “Our incredible rescue coordination team in Quebec jumped into action, instantly contacting us to ensure that the photo shared was really our Noelle.
It was, without a doubt. “We fought through the night to save them all by negotiating a mass purchase of the remaining 8 of her 9 puppies that hadn’t sold yet.” They were only about 5-6 weeks old, way too young to be separated from their mother so abruptly. Of course, the owners had no idea who we were; they simply saw dollar signs and decided to let us acquire them all at once, no questions asked.” “We successfully finalized the purchase on the recommendation of the authorities, and because to one very special volunteer, Noelle and her puppies were reunited only hours later.” “It was an experience that none of us will ever forget.” Have a look at the touching reunion for more, let us know your thoughts, and do not forget to spread out the story on social media with your friends and family in order to make their day beautiful too.
