    URGENT! MAMA AND PUPPIES NEED YOUR HELP!
    Updated about an hour ago · Taken at Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter
    A Mama Black Lab/Beagle Mix, approximately 35-40 lbs. was found on Airline Highway with 4 puppies in a box. All four puppies have what appears to be ringworm. The shelter does not want to take the risk of spreading to other animals so Mama and puppies are scheduled for euthanasia. I found them in their kennel area, where Mama had used her Kuranda bed to urinate and have a bowel movement to avoid having her puppies have to walk in it. I quickly removed the bed, put a clean bed in its place with a sheet so the puppies could curl up on the bed. Ringworm is easy to cure with medication, which the shelter can provide. I am sending this plea in hope that a rescue group or individual may share this email in an attempt to save this sweet Mama and Puppies. The Mama is loving, eager for affection and has hope in her eyes of finding rescue. Please share far and wide in an attempt to save her and puppies. CONTACT: Mimi Olsen, a.s.a.p., email: [email protected]; 504-736-6111 if you can help!! Thank you!

    What a heartbreaking story. Ringworm is easily treatable, I am shocked at the attitude of the shelter.

    Good news, someone has offered to foster the mama and puppies and is making arrangements to have the family transported to her home where she will provide the medical care they need.
