Emaciated Mom and Puppies Find New Homes

(January 26, 2022)

Our investigator discovered emaciated mom Ariel and her puppies trapped on a patio in filthy living conditions. They were stuck in their own filth with nowhere to go for help.

Upon arrival at Houston SPCA, our staff immediately noticed how much care Ariel needed. She had fleas, intestinal parasites, and had been poorly socialized. She was very timid and suspicious of our team at first. We quickly put her on a refeeding diet and treated her for anxiety to help her remain calm. Additionally, her puppies were in equally bad shape, with filthy coats and a heavy parasitic load.

This emaciated mom hadn’t known much love and kindness. She was hesitant to trust our staff. Although she’d tolerate some chin scratches, she’d cower when approached for a head pat. However, with some socialization and time to learn her meals could be relied on, she opened right up and became the happy, sweet dog you see above!

After their recovery, Ariel and her puppies found loving new homes thanks to hard work of our investigator and veterinary staff. Each animal on our campus receives the specialized care that they need and are then matched with the perfect family for them!
