Love of Mommies Program
Animal Ark Rescue has provided a safe place for both pregnant and nursing mommies. Most of the moms we take in come from Columbus Animal Control and we have also taken in a few from Russell County/Phenix City Animal Control.
Saving this critical group of animals is only possible with support of foster homes and funding.
We, along with our veterinarian, make an indepth assessment of any medical conditions, which are treated at once. Pregnant moms are assisted with whelping (which most of the time is during the middle of the night). All too freguently the mom is emaciated and unable to provide milk for her babies. We have fosters that will bottle feed not only puppies but also kittens. Before they can be adopted, the mom will be spayed, dewormed, checked for heartworms, vaccinated, and microchipped. The puppies and kittens are spayed/neutered to end the constant cycle of being pregnant.
We are only able to save these families with those who are willing to open their homes to them and by those who donate the money for our program to continue. If you are interested in opening your home to a family in need, please complete an application. If you are courious what all the requirements are to foster a family, please contact us and we will answer all of your questions.
