A shelter’s wonderful mistake gives hope for a furry family.
WAYNE, NJ - In celebration of a surprise litter of seven sweet pups, A Pathway to Hope Rescue will be hosting a Puppy Shower at Tri-County Animal Hospital on Saturday, April 6th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. This event is dedicated to a beautiful litter of puppies that would never have had a chance if not for a shelter’s wonderful mistake. Bring a toy or treat for our mama and seven pups, and meet these miracle babies!
Mama Sadie was in a kill shelter in Georgia. No one showed interest in this sweet skinny pup until a Pathway adopter requested a young rottie puppy. Pathway contacted the shelter, and they said they had Sadie, who was about to be put to sleep, and she was a four month old rottie pup. A volunteer went to pick Sadie up the next week, and she was shocked to see that the skinny 19 pound pup was now a swollen 35 pounds and obviously pregnant (and obviously not 4 months old!). Pathway couldn’t leave Sadie in her time of need, so a loving foster family was found, and mama Sadie had 7 puppies. Ten weeks later, we are celebrating how a shelter’s mistake gave this family hope.
Sadie and her puppies are available for adoption through A Pathway to Hope rescue. Sadie is 1.5 years old. When she arrived in New Jersey, we realized that she is actually a tiny hound / lab mix weighing in at 32 pounds. Her seven pups are all black and tan and look very similar to their mama.
A Pathway to Hope works closely with Dr. Silberman and his staff at Tri-County Animal Hospital to prepare dogs and cats for their forever homes. Each and every animal that comes through the hospital is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve, whether a cute adoptable puppy, or a scared feral cat in desperate need of help.
Gifts for Sadie and her pups can be dropped off at Tri-County Animal Hospital at 2075 Hamburg Turnpike in Wayne. A Pathway to Hope has a wish list on Amazon for these pups and the many other rescues taken in to the program. The puppies wish list includes: food, treats, toys, martingale collars, leashes, pet beds, wire crates, wee wee pads, dog coats and kongs. To adopt or to donate, please visit www.apathwaytohope.org.
All donations will be utilized for A Pathway to Hope’s mission, the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned dogs and cats, with a special focus on south to north rescue of northern breed dogs, the rescue of stray cats, and community outreach to further the cause of rescue.
