The mother of three puppies gave her life protecting them from freezing temperatures.
Just two days after having given birth to a litter of eight, the mother and three of her pups were found frozen to death in Kingman, Ariz. The other five were transported to the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Del Mar for medical care, where two of them died.
The other three little survivors, Tonka, Tex and Tiki, are now officially up for adoption. Visit the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Web site or call 858-756-4117 if you would like to make a donation or adopt a pet.
