Being dropped off at a shelter is already a traumatic experience for any pet, but even more so when you have been separated from your newborn puppies.

Separation anxiety

When this beautiful dog was dropped off at the Marin Humane Society in California, an examination showed that she had recently given birth. The volunteers at the shelter reached out to the previous owner to reunite her with her puppies. The puppies definitely needed their momma, but it turns out she needed them just as much.


Their presence made her less scared of her surroundings, and she went from cowering in the corner of the kennel to engaging with her little ones.
