BC SPCA shelters in British Columbia have been very busy after the November floods and need help more than ever as the holidays approached.
Last month, a litter of nine pups from North Squamish was given and another litter of eight pups with health problems was included.
The non-profit organization is now hoping for help for Celeste, who was recently admitted to an animal shelter and is suffering from severe emaciation.
She is also the new mom of five puppies.
The pups are in good health, but Celeste’s body is clearly showing signs of neglect and a tough life.
“Celeste would rather die than let her pups starve to death. After a difficult life outdoors, she has gone above and beyond to make sure her pups are safe and it is time she got the same love, “a statement from the BC SPCA reads.
She has been abandoned by an owner who cannot be found, but BC SPCA staff say she is a survivor and an excellent mother.
The staff are working to bring her back to a healthy weight and to give her a strict “re-feeding schedule” as overfeeding emaciated animals can be fatal
