Heard about poor abandoned Sandy giving birth and being cared for in her car park refuge by caring individuals.
The vet had been to visit, diagnosed heartworm and prescribed medication.
Sandy probably has other problems, too. Her stomach feels hard and is very swollen.
PAAWS made space available at the shelter and settled Sandy and her eight pups into their new home.

Three new arrivals at the shelter stealing everyone's hearts!
Three cuties arrived at the shelter today.
Owner not able to keep them.
Sasha is very friendly and alert.
She is Chummy's mum.
Chummy is a shy little boy. He has the cutest face. Lizzie needs a trim.

We found this litte girl in the middle of the back road in Parham.
It took a while, but we finally gained her confidence and managed to get her in the back of the car.
We named her Astrid.
