Litter of 7 orphan pups arrive on emergency transport

On Wednesday, April 29th, Rory (Leech Lake Reservation Community Services Officer) received a call regarding a litter of 7 orphan pups in S. Lake on Leech Lake Reservation. The mama of the pups had not returned and the litter of 7 orphan pups (approximately 4 weeks old) were surrendered to the Leech Lake Tribal Police.

The pups were immediately taken to Animal Care Clinic in Bemidji where they bottle fed the pups as Jenny (LLL Program Director) began making phone calls and arrangements to find placement for these pups and to arrange for transport. Jenny reached out to our partner Animal Humane Society and we are extremely grateful their foster program was ready and able to  bring 7 orphan pups in and fosters ready to bottle feed the orphan pups every 3 hours! The wheels were set in motion and LLL volunteer Eileen picked up the pups from Animal Care Clinic in Bemidji and met Jenny at the half way point to the Twin Cities (Motley). The pups arrived at the Golden Valley Animal Humane Society/AHS a little after 6 pm on Wednesday, 4/29 and were immediately checked out by AHS vet techs ... weighed, de-wormed, microchipped and their foster care kits and crates prepared to send them off to their foster homes!

Thanks to a wonderful network and a caring village, these precious 7 pups will receive the necessary care ..... and when they are old enough to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated, they will be placed up for adoption through our partner Animal Humane Society.
