Rescued puppies heading to their fur-ever homes
A 1,500 mile rescue mission in preparation; a litter of pups and their mother were housed at the Nueces County Animal Services Shelter in Robstown, but they are now on their way to a rescue in Pennsylvania.
The mother is a Blue Heeler. Lisa Bockholt of Nueces County Animal Services says she doesn’t know how long the mother and all the pups were out alone.
Blue Heelers are a variety of Cattle Dogs, and along with Australian Shepherds, they don’t do well being in a confined area like an animal shelter.
“We got a phone message from someone who didn’t even know who the ACDRA was and it left a voicemail that was forwarded to us. And Tracy and I got the chance and said we’re going to go and rescue some puppies, “said Leann Kirkbride and Tracy Ricci of the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association.
Rescue workers say they will care for the pups and mother for almost another month before putting them up for adoption. They will post the entries on their website and Facebook and go through the individual applications to match the pups with their eternal home.
The folks at the Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association are the ones who came down to rescue the pups and they drove 1,500 miles to get them in less than 24 hours. A long trip is definitely worth it.
