A dumped pregnant one-year-old Pit Bull and her puppies are safe thanks to a kind Good Samaritan who spotted the dog hiding in the thorn bushes at the side of a road in Lemoore, California.
At first the woman couldn’t find the dog’s puppies, but she called Kings SPCA Halfway Home for help, and with the help of the mama, they were able to find the puppies nestled in the thick underbrush.
After the family was safe, Kings SPCA Halfway Home shared the rescue story and called out the cruel owner who had dumped the pregnant dog on the side of the road.

“To the owner of our newest addition:
“We know you don’t care because you dumped your pregnant 1 year old dog in the middle of nowhere. We know you don’t care that she was attacked by other animals while she searched for food.
“We know you don’t care that she had to climb into thorn bushes to give birth in order keep her babies safe. We know you have already forgotten the look on her face when you drove away after discarding her like an old tire on the side of the road.”
“We also know that YOU are the reason we continue to rescue these amazing animals. We know she is full of love and kindness….love and kindness that you obviously lack! Your lack of compassion for this beautiful momma is sickening. She is not trash. So don’t worry your selfish, heartless, lazy, ignorant little head. She doesn’t need you.
“She luckily was spotted 3 days prior to us picking her up. She finally trusted a woman by the name of Kelly Leavens Tarlton, who was visiting family nearby. Momma was full of milk but there were no puppies in sight.”
“She was soaking up the love from her new human friend when I arrived. We leashed her and played puppies crying on YouTube. She jumped up and we were moving. Making sure we reminded her how amazing she was for being so strong out there. ‘Good Momma, lets finds the babies!’
“She pulled Kelly into a huge cluster of sticks and brush a ways down the road. Being stabbed and poked from every direction, Kelly didn’t miss a beat and climbed over and under huge branches until Momma climbed into a small deep hole in the bushes.
“Kelly squealed ‘we found them!!!!!’
“When we finally got all the pups in a crate and got them and Momma into the car she put her face next to the crate, she let out a long breath and closed her beautiful eyes.”
“She was finally able to rest. She didn’t have to worry about herself and her pups being attacked. She didn’t have to worry about finding food. She was safe with her babies.
“Thank you to the kind women, Kelly, who called us and sat with her until we could get out to where Momma was found. Most people do not dive head first into unknown brush following a dog but one woman didn’t think twice.”
“It reminds me that there are selfless, compassionate people still around that are fighting the same fight to save a life….or in this case a family.”

Mama and her pups are doing well and are all healthy.
The shelter shared an update and video, “She is absolutely amazing. Extremely loving. It blows our mind that someone could toss this sweet girl out like trash when she is full of so much love.”
